Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was approached by a Georgia-based research statistician to help him file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. He holds a Ph.D. in plant sciences with his leading expertise in the field of agricultural sciences, in data processing, model development, and data analysis, and is highly knowledgeable on the topics of agriculture and plant sciences and other areas related to his intended research. We evaluated his credentials as a part of our job before agreeing to take his case. After thorough consideration, we concluded that our client surely deserves the national interest waiver approval and continue to advance his research here in the U.S. Thus, we agreed in preparing his NIW petition packet, having the following details:

Research Description– We detailed his research on applying his expertise in genomics, bioinformatics, and statistics to continue his research on applied agriculture in order to develop plant varieties that are able to withstand extreme climate scenarios such as high temperature and drought. His research in this area is of great importance because it enables important staple crops to be more resilient against such extreme climatic events as drought. We deduced that his research is critical in the U.S. because it improves plant resistance to climate change scenarios such as high temperatures and drought.

Publication, Citation Count & Funding– Also, we noted that our client published 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (all of them first-authored), which altogether had accumulated 25 citations from researchers hailing from elite and widespread institutes both in the United States and from around the world. This objectively confirms the international influence of his work, as well as the widespread implementation of his work in the field. Besides, we specified how he has pursued research directly related to his proposed project for 9 years and got supported by funding from leading agencies, including grants from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture of the United States Department of Agriculture. This fairly proves that the federal government has already deemed our client’s research efforts valuable, and with the continued dissemination of his research through publications, the benefits of his work continue to impact all parts of the nation by providing a foundation for further developments in agricultural sciences.

Employment letter & Recommendation Letter– Before submitting the petition to USCIS, we asked our client to provide us with his employment letter confirming his current position along with a few recommendations from other well-known researchers in the field. Therefore, he abided by our request and gladly submitted his employment letter and five recommendation letters obtained from other independent advisors in the field corroborating the same the below stated:

“In addition to the water shortages, this entails, droughts threaten the lives of crops, resulting in food shortages for drought-affected states like Texas as well as the interstate and international locations that these areas export crops too. In order to properly respond to weather conditions such as droughts, it is important to breed and engineer crops that withstand these stresses, [client’s] findings on drought tolerance in rice benefit the agricultural well-being of the United States.”

We are pleased to help our client in receiving the NIW petition approval notification after 11 months of waiting. We truly thank our associated team for constructing such an influencing petition on his behalf. Also, thank our client for trusting and cooperating with us throughout the I-140 case processing. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
