Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in computer science and applications and an extensive research experience, undoubtedly, our client possesses the ability to advance in the field of computer science. When he contacted our law firm to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we delved more into his degrees and diplomas, and after thoroughly evaluating his credentials, we established that we would lead him to NIW success and countersigned the retainer agreement.

Our intent was to prove that he is a keystone researcher in his field of endeavor, therefore we added essential attributes to his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition packet. We noted that his work has been cited 86 times by dependent and independent researchers, demonstrating that his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of computer science. We also detailed his contributions to peer-reviewed conference articles which resulted in 2 peer-reviewed journal articles, 3 conference articles (2 of them first-authored), and 1 book chapter. Moreover, we discussed how our client has been invited to conduct peer reviews for elite venues in the field due to his knowledge and expertise in designing interactive teaching software. Since only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are requested to assess the work of their peers, especially in authoritative conferences, evidently our client is seen as very knowledgeable and an expert in his chosen field.

Furthermore, our client’s work related to developing interactive software has great substantial merit and national importance. Among other applications, his research is relevant to improving the quality of the computer research industry in the United States. His research provides methods for improving the techniques used to teach computer science concepts based on analyses of student learning trends, specifically focusing on analyzing the interactions of students with online material, evaluating online content for teaching computer science, and publishing original computer science research in peer-reviewed conference articles.

To bolster our client’s case further, we added recommendation letters signed by five other expert scholars in the field, one of whom stated:

“The United States has benefited greatly from [client’s] work. Although computer science experts are necessary for the functioning of virtually every company and institution in the country, the matriculation of computer science majors from U.S. colleges and universities has lagged… In addition to encouraging better educational practices in general, his work is helping to promote the retention of computer science majors. This endeavor is important both to students, by keeping them on track to graduate with degrees in a lucrative discipline rather than dropping out of college, and to the U.S. economy, by supplying the workforce with well-trained computer scientists. As a result, it is safe to say that [client] is an invaluable resource for the U.S.”

Besides, our client’s work is crucial for improving computer science teaching in the United States to fill spots in a growing field. Due to its clear national importance, his research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This funding is reserved solely for research directed at advancing the national interest, including research that improves national defense, promotes economic stimulus, and helps maintain American research leadership.

We are pleased that our efforts and hard work, in this case, paid off well in proving that our client’s major contributions to the field of computer science make him an irreplaceable asset to the United States, thus he received his NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. We certainly moved him one major step closer to the green card process. Therefore, we thank him for choosing the North America Immigration Law Group to represent his NIW case and wish him very well as he continues to advance in his proposed field.
