Case Summary:

An NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition was approved for our client, an assistant professor with a Ph.D. in engineering with a concentration in computer science. When he approached us, we advised him to send us his documents for evaluation before taking the case. Once he mailed us his I-140 package, we started assessing his credentials. With our comprehensive experience, we have practiced devising our clients’ cases by exhibiting all their successes and achievements in the field to convince USCIS in the best possible manner. Similarly, in this case, we did it by establishing our client’s prospective research project and related accomplishments.

Research Description: Initially, we noted our client’s research focusing on developing machine learning solutions to improve system security, transparency, and explainability of decisions. We learned that his research in this area is of great importance because it improves the explainability of artificial intelligence technology. Therefore, it has paved the way for further technological advancement in industries ranging from transportation to cybersecurity here in the United States.

Publication Record, Citation Count, and Peer-Review Experience: We outlined the 1 peer-reviewed journal article and 8 peer-reviewed conference papers (6 of them first-authored he published in the top conference proceedings, which amassed 34 citations, implying that the publication in conferences is preferable to publication in journals due to the fast-paced nature of the field. It is apparent that he not only has a talent for staying ahead of the curve in this ever-changing industry but also regularly meets these venues’ stringent criteria for academic excellence and scientific novelty. Therefore, our client’s publications are well-professed and highly respected by other scholars in the field.

In addition to his stature as a computer science researcher and because of his reputation as an expert in AI technology, he has been invited by his peers to serve as a peer-reviewer on multiple occasions. He has completed 3 peer reviews to date. Peer review is one of the most important aspects of the research process because a scholar’s record of peer review reveals that fellow researchers in the field value and trust one’s judgment in determining the relevance of manuscripts submitted for publication. Our client’s service as a peer-review acknowledges that his peers widely consider him to possess the necessary qualifications and research profile to make informed publication decisions during the peer-review process, thereby providing a strong testament to his notably influential role in conducting pioneering research in the field of computer science.

Recommendation Letters: Also, we incorporated five recommendation letters provided by our client, signed by his peers to corroborate how he possesses the relevant academic credentials that reflect many years of experience as a researcher operating at the highest levels of computer science scholarship. Therefore, the following statement has been stated by one of his recommenders:

“Ransomware, a form of cyber-attack that essentially holds user data hostage using encryption and demands a fee in exchange for the decryption keys, is one of the biggest threats affecting the United States and computer users online… [Client’s] research addresses this threat head-on, as he has exploited AI and machine learning techniques to detect ransomware attacks before they encrypt user’s data. The United States must continue to support this research to protect its citizens and local governments from cyber-attacks.”

Our customized petition packet demonstrated that our client has a clear and practical plan for future activity in the field of computer science and must be granted the national interest waiver. Gladly, our client received his EB-2 NIW petition approval without any obstacles, and our team’s persevering efforts, in this case, bore the prolific result. We truly thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group to represent his I-140 application and congratulate him for propelling in his intended area of study.
