Client’s Testimonial:

On March 26th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Ph.D. Student in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: : Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Ph.D. Student

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 26th, 2020

Processing Time: 6 months, 12 days

Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) helped a Ph.D. student from Iran acquire EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. Our client’s research focused on GPU architecture design. We worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it enhances the security of computer systems and also improves the performance of GPU architectures, enabling computers to more easily meet the demands of machine learning and cloud computing applications. Therefore, his work has contributed significantly to the field of computer science, and his research is an asset to the growing number of businesses worldwide that are reliant on cloud computing.

Drafting the Petition:

While preparing his NIW case, we looked at our client’s educational and professional qualifications and included what we learned in the petition packet drafted by us. We noted that he received an M.Sc. in Computer Science. This was adjudged by the 58 citations accumulated from his 4 peer-reviewed conference papers (1 of them first-authored) and the 2 times he reviewed the work of his peers.

Letters of Recommendation:

The NIW petition received a boost from the recommendation letters contributed by other distinguished experts in the field. These letters detailed our client’s academic achievements and research projects, and shed light on the highly urgent nature of his efforts in aiding the United States’ technology and automobile sector. Endorsing our client’s continued stay in the country, one recommender wrote: “[Client] is one such individual whose pioneering research on defense mechanisms against side channel attacks enhances the security of multi- core processors and cloud computing systems. In a world heavily dependent on computing systems, [client’s] research is invaluable to the secure operation of a plethora of computer programs, applications, and technologies.”

We are delighted that our efforts led to his NIW approval in just 6 months and 12 days. We thank our client for trusting our services and retaining our law firm for his I-485 application too.
