Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was approached to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a research assistant researching the field of applied statistics. Due to our known expertise and experience, we assess our client’s credentials to make sure if the candidature is fitting for the applied visa. In this case, we were certain of our client’s testimony, and we agreed to lead him to the national interest waiver approval. Hence, for proving the relevance of his continued contribution to the U.S., we commenced putting all the required paperwork in his petition packet. Here are some of it in bits:

  • We reviewed his research focusing on designing novel methods for analyzing and modeling complex health surveys and correlated epidemiological data to monitor non-communicable diseases and for the early detection of epidemics, concluding its great importance as it improves the ability to model and predict pandemics, which are large-scale outbreaks of infectious diseases that generally result in high morbidity and mortality rates over a wide geographic area, leading to economic, social, and political disruptions.
  • Additionally, we noted the 650 citations gathered from the 29 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 first-authored), 2 data books, and 2 reports he published in no fewer than 3 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. His citation record determines that he has a major influence on other scholars’ from around the world with his useful approaches to the study of complex studies within the field of applied statistics. Moreover, many of his papers have been among the most highly cited in the field, indicating both the originality and significance of his research work and its consequences. Besides, our client has completed 17 peer reviews, confirming that he is an active member of the scientific community and has an elevated position in the field.
  • We also specified that his work has been granted funding by some national administrative and research centers, therefore getting supported by funding from leading agencies demonstrates the importance and national significance of his research and his success in the field.
  • To strengthen his case further, we added four recommendation letters that he gathered from other leading experts in the field, emphasizing that countries everywhere must extend support to research like that of our client to capture their respective populations accurately and safely. The following excerpt has been taken out from one of the letters:

“The U.S. economy and public health sector rely upon concise results for patients and public research, which cannot exist without [client] and other experts contributing thorough improvements to the statistics field.”

Yet again, we were successful in convincing USCIS that our client’s research is relevant to pandemic prediction, the calibration of big data, and the improvement of clinical trials for assessing the efficacy of new pharmaceuticals and he deserves the national interest waiver. Successfully, our client received the NIW approval. We truly thank him for choosing our law firm to work with and be a part of this amazing journey.
