Case Summary:

We are thrilled to report that with the help of the North America Immigration Law Group Team, our client’s I-140 NIW petition was approved in just 2 days, thanks to USCIS’s premium processing service. We are ecstatic to be a part of his success story.

Our client is a holder of a Ph.D. in computer science from Nepal and most of his work is in the field of cyber-physical systems. He intended to continue his research on designing new deterministic performance approaches for embedded edge devices to support intelligent and safety-critical systems in the automotive, aerospace, and defense sectors.

When we scrutinized our client’s proposed research, we deduced that it is of great importance because it provides novel approaches to improve embedded edge devices and optimize edge computing systems, therefore, we agreed to counter-sign the client-attorney relationship and help him achieve the National Interest Waiver visa. In order to make significant progress in his national interest waiver case, we made sure to highlight some important elements in his NIW petition packet:

  • We noted that his research has produced 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored and 1 co-first-authored with equal contribution), 2 conference articles (both of them first-authored), 1 first-authored cited abstract, and 1 cited preprint.
  • It has also been published in some of the top publication venues in his field, no fewer than two highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Furthermore, the fact that these publications have been published in prestigious journals within his field of expertise shows that his colleagues appreciate this study.
  • We specified that at the time of his application, his work and research had 38 citations.
  • Owing to his proficiency in edge computing and real-time systems, he has been consistently invited to serve as a peer reviewer for reputable publications in the field. To date, he has completed at least 23 reviews.
  • Furthermore, the National Science Foundation has provided support for this research. This financial help is allocated to programs that advance science and education. Thus, it is evident that our client’s study offers cutting-edge instruments for computing innovation.

All in all, his work on cost-aware cloudlet placement shows that he is moving in the right direction toward his overall goal of developing novel deterministic performance techniques for embedded edge devices.

Taking into account that our team is incredibly well-versed in the intricacies of immigration law and proved to be extremely professional and accommodating during our client’s NIW petition process. Having achieved over 32K approved cases, we were able to deliver all of our clients’ pertinent research data with relief. We are overjoyed that our client secured his NIW approval without any hassles. We value our client’s confidence in our legal services and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
