General Field: Electrical Engineering

Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “[Client] has also made significant advances in improving the design of chirp waveforms, which are utilized in underwater communication. By introducing a novel improvement to these waveforms, [client] has made a substantial contribution to improving communicative abilities underwater, which consequently has benefits in various marine areas.” This statement was made by a prominent associate professor whose recommendation letter played an important role in securing our client the national interest waiver. This professor was not alone in this show of support and was joined by four other prominent researchers, all of whom contributed recommendation letters of their own. We have no doubt that these letters paved the way for case approval, and we are pleased that our client persuaded these influential researchers to support his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition.

Besides these letters of recommendation, our client’s comprehensive NIW petition packet was composed of information related to his work on developing digital signal processing algorithms for enhancing communications. We made sure that our client’s petition packet proved that his research results directly contribute to the United States’ economy. Additionally, we convinced the USCIS that his research in this area is of great importance because it has direct application to the effective operation of 5G wireless communications.

To further strengthen our client’s NIW petition, we used Google Scholar to confirm his citation count. At the time of filing, his 2 first-authored conference articles and 2 first-authored arXiv preprints had already gathered 12 citations, which proved that his work is important to other researchers in the field of electrical engineering. We also noted the 9 times our client judged the work of his peers.

We are pleased that with our dedicated work, he has overcome this significant hurdle in the green card process. We congratulate him on this win and wish him the best as he waits for the USCIS to take action on his I-485 application. Once approved, he will become a US permanent resident.
