General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Kentucky

Approval Notice Date: May 31st, 2022

Processing Time: 16 months, 24 days

Case Summary:

“[The client’s] solutions also allow multiple generation devices to work harmoniously on one system. This will become ever more important as legacy technologies come to share the same networks as emerging ones. His solution to heterogeneous technology use contributes to these wider goals of offering the highest quality communication available and ensuring its access by as many users as possible.”

“[Client’s] research addresses this very issue, as he endeavors to enable the many, heterogeneous devices currently available and that will become available in the future to work in concert for the better efficiency and sustainability of the urban landscape.”

“The United States relies on researchers such as [the client] for sustaining its economic growth as well as making improvements for communications for its population. His work, therefore, responds to US interests quite well.”

These are 3 excerpts taken from the recommendations that our client from India was able to receive for his NIW petition to USCIS on our advice. He has been working as an assistant professor in computer science and has become an integral part of the field here in the United States. Keeping this in mind, when our firm countersigned the retainer agreement, we quickly employed our team to put together any relevant information on his academic and professional career, such as his publications, citations, and review experience along with any funds that he might have received from institutions of repute.

Soon we had discovered that his work in the field has resulted in 15 peer-reviewed conference papers (9 of them first-authored), 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 first-authored), and 1 book chapter. Not only this, but his research has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, his publications have been cited a total of 115 times according to Google Scholar at the time of filing I-140. He has completed at least 19 peer reviews to date. Since only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in authoritative journals like these, it was clear that he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.

His research has also been supported by funding from multiple U.S. federal grants that promote indispensable advances in areas such as national security, economic prosperity and defense capabilities. This support of his research, therefore, serves as evidence that his contributions to computer science technology have greatly strengthened several areas of national development in the United States.

This is the reason that we were not surprised when our client received his NIW approval. We are proud of having had the opportunity to represent him in this case. We wish him the very best in life.
