General Field: Applied Mathematics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: AI Research Scientist

Country of Origin: South Korea

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: June 3rd, 2021

Processing Time: 8 months

Case Summary:

Armed with a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, an AI research scientist from South Korea intends to continue to integrate concepts from spectral graph theory, information theory, stochastic geometry, and applied probability in order to provide unified mathematical frameworks for the advancement of data science and artificial intelligence, hired our law firm to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. As a part of our job, we made sure of the veracity of his submitted credentials, and we counter-signed the attorney-client relationship agreement to lead him to a national interest waiver visa.

Here is a list of attributes that impressed us, and we aimed at organizing a unique petition packet on behalf of our client:

  • His publication record was noteworthy to mention, the 4 peer-reviewed conference papers (1 of them first-authored) and 3 peer-reviewed journal articles. In computer science, papers in peer-reviewed conferences are accepted as high-quality scholarly articles, which are arguably more prestigious than journal publications. It would be incorrect to disregard conference publications while evaluating a computer scientist, a computer scientist’s conference publications are the equivalent of journal publications in other fields. Thus, the selection of our client’s research for publication in these top conference journals affirms the fact that the quality of his research sets him apart from his peers in the field.
  • Not only did he complete and publish the results of his research in the field, but his research also went on to influence his colleagues as his publications were cited a total of 136 times, indicating both the originality and significance of his methods and results on his peers. Besides, based on his knowledge and expertise in the field, he has been frequently invited to conduct peer reviews for discerning journals and conferences in the field, therefore, completing 10 peer reviews to date. Since only the most remarkable researchers in the field are invited to judge the work of their peers, especially in authoritative journals confirm that our client is seen as well-read and recognized in the field of applied mathematics.
  • We also highlighted the importance of his work through its funding support, provided by the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Defense. The criteria for receiving grants from both of these organizations are very stringent. The NSF awards funding to only 11,000 proposals out of an estimated 40,000 submitted each year. The DOD, according to its website, manages its research investments based on its aim of ensuring DoD is a leader in scientific discovery. Therefore, receipt of this funding demonstrates the significance and national importance of our client’s research and his success in the field.

Moreover, we noted how his research is of great importance because it enables technologies that improve health and human life, and it additionally benefits the economy at large. For this reason, his research in applied mathematics is exceptional and important to concede the benefits of artificial intelligence and data science, which span across industries like healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, financial services, and energy industries here in the United States.

We are glad that we could lead our client to his I-140 NIW petition approval. This case’s successful approval got added to our more than 17K approved cases bucket. We would like to thank our adept team for working on this case diligently and proving that our client is well-positioned to pursue his proposed work here in the U.S. considering the breadth of his 15 years of experience, as well as his leadership and expertise in the field. Also, we thank our client for choosing the North America Immigration Law Group for filing his NIW petition. We also wish him well for progressing in his chosen field.
