Case Summary:

A biostatistician based in Ohio hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Once we were retained, our dedicated team initiated a comprehensive research on our client’s experience and expertise in order to devise a strong petition. With our help, his NIW was approved in 7 months and 12 days.

After months of hard work, we managed to gather information regarding our client’s work on improving statistical methods for high-dimensional classification and their application to machine learning methods for human health analysis and modeling. We put together a solid case that comprised of an array of information. This included data on our client’s 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and the 7 times his work was cited. We also noted the 2 times our client judged the work of his peers. Despite the low number of his citation count, he got his NIW approved.

With a PhD in statistics and many years of experience working in the field of biostatistics, our client is a shoo-in for the National Interest Waiver. We demonstrated that our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it contributes to more effective data analysis and statistical analysis methods that are essential for a wide range of fields, pursuits, and endeavors throughout the scientific community. His work has also proven exceptionally useful for leveraging social media data analytics into the improvement of disease progression and severity, including a study regarding the impact of influenza on public health.

Besides that, we also included 6 recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s NIW petition and they reiterated the significance of his work to the United States. According to one of these recommenders: “His work is also invaluable for the examination of large datasets related to human genetics and disease risk. In short, if the U.S. aims to maintain its place as a global leader in the development of innovative medical solutions and the provision of top-quality clinical care, then it can ill-afford to lose such a talented scientific mind as [client].”

We join our client as he celebrates the approval of his NIW petition and we thank him for retaining us to help him with his I-485 application.
