General Field: Advanced Computing

Case Summary:

We take pride in the fact that over the years, we have come to represent people from all over the world and from a variety of professions. Having over 32,000 approvals to our name, we have confidence in our case preparation techniques. This is why we have developed a very specific routine that we take with all of our clients. One of these clients turned out to be from Turkmenistan. He was a National Interest Waiver client and had a Ph.D. in mathematics. Working as a senior operations research scientist in the area for several years, he gained valuable experience. So when he wanted us to help him with his I-140 NIW petition, we followed precedent and began by making a list of his academic and professional achievements. Some of them are as follows:

  • As an expert in the field of advanced computing, his proposed endeavor is to continue his development of robust, fast, computationally efficient, and privacy-protected algorithms that analyze and solve large-scale problems in machine learning and data analysis.
  • His research to advance his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it has applications to better understanding, managing, and resolving an area of critical real-world issues.
  • This proposal also has broad implications for the United States since his research plays a direct role in processing data gleaned from and applied to social media. This is a massive industry in the United States and one where Americans are frequently demanding more functionality and services.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his research has, in fact, been supported by funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation, or NSF, in the form of grants. These grants are highly sought-after and competitive. Furthermore, this funding is reserved solely for research directed at advancing the national interest, including driving the U.S. economy, enhancing the nation’s security, and advancing “the national health, prosperity, and welfare”.
  • He has also completed at least 2 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable venues like these, it is clear that he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.
  • His research has resulted in six peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (two of them first-authored) as well.
  • These publications have come to be cited a total of 57 times, according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of advanced computing.
  • Along with this, he has 4 letters of support collected from recommenders around the world who praised the value of his work and understood its significance specifically for the U.S.

So, when the petition was filed containing all of these facts, we knew that his approval would definitely come through, and so it did only 3 months and 17 days later. We are glad that we could help him and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
