Case Summary:

A Chinese data scientist in the field of computer engineering hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf. After months of working closely with our client, we filed a customized NIW petition that highlighted her notable achievements which includes 21 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles in her name, the 133 times her work were cited, and 11 instances of peer review works she conducted.

As we have petitioned nearly 15,000 successful I-140 EB-1A, EB-1B, and NIW cases, our legal team possesses considerable experience in the approaches for drafting letters and collecting all supporting evidence for this successful petition. Our client waited for only 6 months and a day to receive the approval notice from USCIS.

Our vast experience in handling self-sponsored employment-based petitions equipped us with effective legal strategies to achieve this NIW approval. To build an impactful case, our team carefully went through her credentials and submitted relevant evidence of her current research and future research plans. With a doctoral degree in electrical and computer engineering, our client has also applied her skills in computer engineering to the analysis of medical images and the diagnosis of disease based on CT scans, which is another avenue through which her work is beneficial to the nation. We concluded that her findings in computer algorithms for analyzing biomedical images holds significant implications for medical imaging and disease treatment and prevention.

Alongside the aforementioned information, we included 6 recommendation letters signed by other influential researchers. One recommender confirmed how nationally important our client’s research is by stating, “[Client]’s work on computing algorithms for the analysis of biomedical images has earned her a position as a leader in the field and demonstrates the importance of her continued computer engineering research.”.

We are pleased at this successful outcome, and we wish her a prosperous future here in the United States as she continues to progress in the field of computer engineering towards improvement of computing tools for healthcare applications.
