Case Summary:

A research engineer hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-2 NIW(National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client, with a doctoral degree in computer science and information engineering and tremendous knowledge in the same field, showed the abilities and caliber to advance his proposed research work here in the United States. Soon, we started documenting his petition after thoroughly evaluating the credentials. We chose to attach the following documents in his petition packet to fortify his case further:

Research Summary:

We examined his research on using AI technology to apply big data to generate new findings in genomics, implying its great importance because it advances the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical applications such as diagnostics by applying big data to the creation of innovative deep learning algorithms. His innovative work in designing AI algorithms enables better interpretability of information based on big data in the field of genomics is critical to addressing the ongoing concerns.

Citation and Publication:

We recorded that our client had gathered 95 citations from the 13 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (9 of them first-authored) he published. Additionally, these articles have been published in the topmost journals in his field, expressing his peers’ recognition of our client’s valuable research work.

Peer-Review Experience and Funding:

To boot, we noted he is also an active peer-reviewer in the scientific community and has already conducted reviews for highly acclaimed journals. His research has also been supported by funding from leading agencies, demonstrating the recognized value and importance of his work. This funding includes grants from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. These grants are reserved for research directly addressing critical problems in computer science and the larger society.

Recommendation Letters:

To streamline our client’s EB-2 petition, we suggested providing us with a few letters of recommendation, and our client managed to obtain four recommendation letters from fellow experts in the field, one of whom contributed the below-mentioned words:

“[Client’s]work in determining algorithms to quickly map out gene sequences gives researchers a huge advantage…He greatly contributes to identifying new methods of treatment for common genetic conditions such as cancer. Therefore, his continued research is indispensable for the public health of the United States.”

Final Victory:

Our dedicated team ensured meeting all the requirements in convincing the USCIS of this case, and successfully, our client obtained the EB-2 NIW petition approval after 6 months. Our entire team truly thanks him for associating with us. We also congratulate him for continuing with his breakthrough here in the United States.
