Case Summary:

A doctoral candidate approached us with a proposal to further his research on developing state-of-the-art machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, intending to design high-impact applications in the fields of computer vision, natural language processing, optimization, operational research, and business.

His research and other researchers’ findings are pertinent to the economy and technological advancements. We therefore concluded that his work is highly significant since it coincides with a considerable change in the technical environment.

Thus, we drafted a solid petition packet to respond to his I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) application. We continued and acquired detailed information on his educational and professional background. Our legal team’s extensive knowledge has helped over 32,000 petitioners obtain successful outcomes in their particular visa categories, consequently, we were certain to lead this client to his NIW victory as well.

We integrated the following points in his customized petition packet:

  • We highlighted that he has secured an M.Eng. in engineering science and his research has resulted in 9 peer-reviewed conference articles (6 of them first-authored and 1 of them co-first-authored), 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them co-first-authored), and 9 pre-prints (1 of them first-authored and 3 of them co-first-authored). He has published these papers in no fewer than 6 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
  • Upon reviewing our client’s citation record (257 citations), it is evident that he has had a noticeable influence on other scholars’ grasp of topics in the field of AI. Also, at least 10 of his papers are among the most highly cited in the field of Computer Science for their years of publication.
  • In addition, he has been invited to conduct peer reviews for reputable publications and conferences in the field because of his knowledge and command over machine learning and effective optimization algorithms. He has completed at least 30 reviews so far. It is evident that he is regarded as an authority in the field and on subjects connected to his proposed endeavor.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States. By spearheading the development of advanced machine learning and AI solutions focusing on creating high-impact applications, our client contributes directly to the nation’s technological prowess and economic competitiveness.

As aforementioned, he has an advanced degree in a field tied to the proposed endeavor, and the supporting documentation indicates that he has a great deal of experience, knowledge, and a track record of accomplishment in a very specialized field. Furthermore, the documentation attached herewith clarifies that our client plans to hold a position that is narrowly tailored to his unique skillset related to developing cutting-edge machine learning and AI solutions.

Therefore, our unique strategy in his case turned out to be successful. Once again, the attorneys at North America Immigration Law Group were able to effectively manage this case, and our client was successfully approved for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, which was submitted in September 2023 and approved in October 2023. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.
