Case Summary:

Our client, an M.S. in biomedical engineering based in Texas, hired the North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf. We noted that she had published 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them co-first-authored), 4 peer-reviewed conference articles (2 of them co-first-authored), and 4 preprints (2 of them first-authored), altogether acquiring 484 citations. Her proficiency in her area of expertise could be further demonstrated by her service as a peer reviewer. She has completed at least 24 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable venues, it is explicit that our client is very knowledgeable in the field of artificial intelligence.

With a track record of over 32,000 successfully obtained visa approvals for such shining clients, we are well-versed in USCIS trends. We can ascertain how an NIW candidate might obtain the EB-2 visa without encountering any difficulties. So, starting with her groundbreaking research on developing deep learning methods for mining large-scale data in order to advance supervised learning, self-supervised learning, and optimization for healthcare, natural language processing, advertising, and autonomous driving applications, we gathered all the pertinent information in her NIW case petition.

We explained how her research is of great importance because it positions deep learning and artificial intelligence at the forefront of transformative technology, crucial for multiple domains. Thus, her research advancing her proposed endeavor is relevant to ensuring artificial intelligence’s pivotal role in transformative technologies, as well as reducing healthcare spending and enhancing cybersecurity measures.

Furthermore, due to its transparent national importance, her research has been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This funding is reserved solely for research directed at advancing the national interest, including studies that “promote the progress of science” and are dedicated to “protecting and improving health”. Her successful research into molecular property prediction with advanced deep learning techniques, imbalanced dataset classification through advanced AUPRC optimization, and graph representation learning with self-supervised techniques amply illustrates this. She is also in a unique position to pursue this research work because of her background, knowledge, and leadership in the industry.

Therefore, she satisfies every necessary prong when taking into account the aforementioned criteria and the supporting documentation. We are appreciative of her sustained faith in our law firm and were pleased to learn that the adjudicating judge had responded favorably to her NIW case. A special thanks to the premium processing service upgrade because of which she secured her NIW approval in just 5 days. We truly congratulate our client on her achievement and thank her for making us an integral part of this wonderful journey.
