Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for your help and support with my case!”

On April 30th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Software Engineer in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Software Engineer

Country of Origin: Romania

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: April 30th, 2022

Processing Time: 18 months, 28 days

Case Summary:

The EB2 I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) application demands petitioners to present evidence of their work’s significance to the country. Once the petition has been approved by the adjudicating bench at the USCIS, the petitioner gets a labor certification waiver and can thus continue to work in the United States in their chosen area of study. So when a client from Romania asked us to prepare his NIW petition, we had to look into his academic and professional documents to find relevant information. Our team was able to discover the following:

  • He was a senior software engineer and his proposed endeavor was to work on the development of advanced image processing techniques, algorithms, and software to improve the detection, diagnosis, and treatment planning of various diseases and conditions.
  • We estimated that his research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because the results of his work serve to address pressing health concerns, including osteosarcoma. Through his work, he serves to ensure optimal healthcare and enhance public health throughout the globe.
  • This is why he could also easily obtain 5 letters of recommendation from experts in the field. One of these letters had the following to say about his work:

“Annually, hundreds of people are diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the United States, half of which are children and teens. [The client’s] research is of the utmost importance to the United States and its citizens for this reason. He is helping to facilitate a more consistent and precise detection of osteosarcoma, thereby allowing for more precise necrosis estimation and treatment planning. Already, [client’s] research has aided medical professionals in osteosarcoma detection.”

  • On the other hand, his work has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas.
  • We also noted that his work has resulted in 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), 9 peer-reviewed conference articles (8 of them first-authored), and 3 pre-print articles (all of them first-authored). And these publications have been cited a total of 27 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of computer science.
  • He has also been invited to evaluate the work of his peers and has already conducted at least 10 reviews, including reviews for international journals of repute.

These facts when combined made for a very impressive petition letter winning him the approval without an RFE. We are glad to have worked with him and we wish him the best for the future.
