Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from Libya engaged the services of North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him in furnishing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. While filing our client’s petition, we assembled all the required details on his research work in the field of electrical engineering. We evaluated that he held a Ph.D. in electrical engineering with several years of experience and expertise, a record of impressive publication, and citations in the same field signifying that he is an exemplary expert to benefit the field of electrical engineering here in the United States.

We commenced preparing a solid case based on our client’s substantial credentials, by adding the following bits of information in his petition packet:

Research Brief:
We discovered his research on developing novel machine learning algorithms, physical security layer techniques, and medium access protocols to enhance the security, throughput, and latency of Fifth Generation (5G) wireless networks. Our client’s work in the field is of great importance because the machine learning techniques that he develops are critical for improving the safety and efficacy of 5G wireless networks. With the number of 5G users estimated to grow to one billion in the next three years, it is imperative that those who use these networks are protected against eavesdropping attacks and are also able to use their services effectively.

Publication Record, Peer-review Experience and Citation Count:
We elaborated how our client’s work inspired his peers and accumulated 44 citations from the 11 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (6 of them first-authored) he published. Also, we noted that he conducted 8 reviews as an active peer-reviewer of the scientific community, intending his important stand in the field.

Recommendation Letter:
As per our suggestion, our client obtained 5 recommendation letters from fellow superiors working in the same field. We added the same in his petition packet and presented it to the USCIS as additional evidence. According to one of his recommenders:

“While [client] has demonstrated his capability of applying deep learning techniques to solve problems in wireless communications,… and as demonstrated by his previous achievements in the field of wireless networks, his skills are highly adaptable thus very beneficial for the country.”

Successful Result:
Victoriously, we convinced USCIS that our client offers contributions of such value that, on balance, they would benefit the United States and he must continue his research. The team at genuinely thank and congratulate him for trusting and associating with us.
