“Thank you very much for your help throughout the process.”

On May 28th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Indiana

Approval Notice Date: May 28th, 2022

Processing Time: 6 months, 3 days

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of electrical engineering, our NIW (National Interest Waiver) client’s proposed endeavor was to continue his development of dynamic, state-of-the-art data representation models. He wanted to aid the advancement of artificial intelligence and the global Internet of Things. Among other applications, his research is relevant to an extremely broad range of industries including transportation, healthcare, and national security. As his contributions aid the transfer, storage, and interpretation of data on a massive scale, he has laid the groundwork for the next generation of information technology. His research is of immense importance because it serves to advance many interconnected facets of modern life.

On the other hand, his proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since the U.S. is a vastly technologically interconnected nation, with nearly every facet of commerce, industry, and daily life governed in some part by the collection and flow of data. Due to its clear national importance, his research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Office, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and he has received 4 letters of recommendation as well. One of these had the following to say about his work:

“Self-driving vehicles operate by assessing their surroundings and, in certain cases, communicating with neighboring vehicles to determine the most suitable action, such as braking and steering. Advancing this technology is of high importance in the United States, as more than half of US states have introduced some form of legislation regarding self-driving vehicles. To ensure the realization of this transformation in the automotive industry, it is important to ensure that each vehicle is able appropriately assess the data it collects. [The client’s] algorithm better facilitates the ability to process large quantities of data among multiple nodes than previous algorithms. He is therefore an invaluable asset to the United States.”

Along with this, his research has also academically enriched the scientific community through his publications and peer review service. He has already completed 16 reviews to date and has authored 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored) and 10 peer-reviewed conference papers (7 of them first-authored) to date. Not only this but his research has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, these publications have been cited a total of 141 times according to Google Scholar.

At the same time, his research career spans 11 long years of work giving him an edge over other newer researchers in his field. So proving the worthiness and worth of his work for the United States was not very difficult once we had his petition packet together. So when we received his NIW confirmation 6 months later, we were happy to have worked with him on this case.
