Case Summary:

With an M.S. degree in computer science, a research scientist intending to advance in the same field hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. When he contacted us, we advised him to submit only relevant, probative, and credible evidence that could lead USCIS to believe that his continued contributions in the field of computer science are invincible and he must continue his stay in the United States.

After receiving the copies of his diploma and transcript, the employment letter confirming his current position, and the signed statement from him describing his future research plans and evidence of his future job opportunities, we were certain of his suitability for the national interest waiver. Thus, we agreed to help him in preparing his NIW petition for which we gathered an array of important details and listed them in his petition package in the most unique way possible:

  • Research Summary- Our client’s work focused on the development of efficient deep learning models for practical applications in natural language processing, computer vision, and botnet detection. We concluded that his research is relevant to revolutionizing artificial intelligence technologies which in turn helps in advancing several other critical areas, including autonomous vehicles, healthcare, and manufacturing and production here in the United States.
  • Funding Grants- His research has been supported with funding from the United States Department of Defense (DoD) under the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the United Healthcare Foundation (now the United Health Foundation). The receipt of funding from such notable organizations also indicates that our client’s research has been acknowledged for its ability to discourse crucial matters in the field of computer science, and it is significantly beneficial to the United States and its national objectives.
  • Publication & Citation Count- We observed that in computer science, papers in peer-reviewed conferences are accepted as high-quality scholarly articles, thus we noted our client’s remarkable publication record of 5 peer-reviewed conference papers (2 of them first-authored), 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 first-authored), and one book chapter, proving how his work serves as a useful example of the excellence of his research and the broad influence of his findings. His publications altogether accumulated 35 citations, implying that his research is widely read by his fellow experts and that they frequently implement his research to advance their own projects.
  • Peer Review Experience- Not only did he have a noteworthy record of achievement in publications and citations but he had also conducted at least 2 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals, firming his worthy recognition in the field.
  • Letters of Support- To strengthen our client’s case further, we incorporated five of his obtained recommendation letters from fellow expert researchers, and one of them provided the below-stated insight on his proposed project:

“[Client’s] research improves a wide array of areas within technological industries, and one area of the highest importance is the cybersecurity of the United States. 1 of every 3 people in the United States experiences a cybersecurity breach of their personal records every year… His research on developing the model based on deep learning significantly improved the national cybersecurity of the United States by enhancing malware detection. In general, he is working to improve the artificial intelligence available to the United States by implementing deep learning algorithms. This research is extremely valuable to US interests both public and private in cybersecurity and technology leadership. Given this fact, it is clear that [client] is one of the most important researchers in computer science today.”

Though USCIS adjudicated our client’s case for 9 months but granted him the NIW approval without raising any further request for evidence. We especially thank our NAmILG team for being vigilant and hard-working in preparing this case and successfully proving how our client’s developments in deep learning methods for textual understanding and malware detection are thus of great international importance, therefore, he must continue advancing his research in the United States unimpeded. Our efforts have indeed moved our client a major step ahead in achieving his green card. We congratulate him on accomplishing this success and wish him the best as he continues to advance in his preferred discipline.
