General Field: Network Science

Case Summary:

“One researcher who is enhancing preparedness for influenza is [the client]. By utilizing his skills with data-driven computational modeling, [the client] is simulating transmission rates of airborne diseases in a variety of social and physical environments. He is accurately predicting transmission rates of airborne diseases and thereby allowing policymakers to prepare the United States for influenza outbreaks. [Client’s] unique research greatly reduces the national burden of airborne diseases.”

“[The client] is actively investigating the social barriers in place that prevent women from joining the workforce and climbing up to leadership positions in order to advance women’s rights and equality in the United States workforce. Because work teams consisting of all genders, as well as people with a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, are proven to produce better innovations for society, [client’s] efforts benefit the United States substantially.”

As is evident from the above statements, the client is a highly specialized researcher with work that is of great benefit to the United States as well as the world at large. These quotes are a part of longer letters written in support of our client who was working in the field of network science with a proposed endeavor to continue his application of data science and network analytics methods. He wanted to solve complex problems with regard to public health and social justice for improving the quality of life for individuals around the world.

So, when our client from Bangladesh came to us, with his NIW request, we made certain that we provided him with the best service possible. Our team utilized the documents he provided along with 4 letters of recommendation and gathered the following information for his petition packet:

  • The client’s research progressing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it contributes to advancing public health and addressing matters of social justice across the world. His innovative work, therefore, represents an invaluable resource for the national healthcare system.
  • Due to its clear national importance, his research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
  • He has completed at least 5 reviews to date.
  • His research has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored, peer-reviewed conference paper.
  • His publications have been cited a total of 111 times according to Google Scholar
  • His study on the examination of diversity and gender equity in knowledge production has been recognized and supported by the NSF.
  • His innovative work in the domain of network science facilitates the characterization of social structures using computer simulations, statistical analyses, network visualizations, and data mining, allowing professionals to devise beneficial policies related to public health and social justice in the United States.

We hence showed that there is a particularly urgent national need for his continuing contributions considering the domestic burden of deadly infectious diseases like pneumonia and influenza, coupled with substantial inequalities in public health and social research. We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with him and we wish him the very best in all future endeavors.
