Success Stories: Comprehensive Petition Led to NIW Approval for Researcher in the Field of Computer Science, Despite RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“It was a great experience working with you.”

On February 7th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas (processed in Nebraska)

Approval Notice Date: February 7th, 2020

Processing Time: 6 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

Not long ago, a researcher from Iran received the good news that the USCIS had approved her EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. With extensive experience working in the field of computer science, our client also holds an M.Sc. in the same field. Amongst other things, these qualifications ensured her eligibility for the national interest waiver.

In order to prove to the USCIS that our client deserved to get one step closer to her green card, we gathered a wealth of information on her diverse achievements in the field. From her citation count to publication record (57 and 11 respectively at the time of filing), we listed it all. We also noted the 12 times she assessed the work of her peers, which demonstrated her position as a leading expert in her field. To strengthen her case, we incorporated 6 recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the research community. These experts strongly advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-2 NIW petition by signing off statements such as these:

  • “In doing so, [client] increases the trust with which users instill in mobile applications and online services. This increase in trust benefits the consumers, who use applications and services that bring utility to their day-to-day lives, and it secures clients for these companies providing online services.”
  • “Social media has consistently been one of most reliable tools for malicous groups to gather new personnel, and [client] makes great strides in limiting that power. For these reasons, [client’s] research is in explicit alignment with United States interests.”

We took a step further and proved to the USCIS that our client’s findings on online behavioral analysis by investigating artificial intelligence safety, keyword filters for social media data analysis, and algorithms for restaurant recommender application is of great importance because it benefits the security of Internet users.

The approval of this petition is yet another example of our firm’s excellent record of helping our clients secure I-140 approval. We thank our client for selecting us to represent her NIW case and we wish her a bright future ahead.
