On March 31st, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior AI Data Scientist in the Field of Computer Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Engineering

Country of Origin: Syria

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Alabama

Approval Notice Date: March 31st, 2020

Processing Time: 9 months, 25 days

Case Summary:

The USCIS considered it befitting to acknowledge the years of computer engineering expertise possessed by a senior AI data scientist by granting him EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. They were convinced that his work— focused on machine learning— is of great importance to the United States.

North America Immigration Law Group’s meticulous approach to this case started with the verification of our client credentials to determine EB-2 NIW suitability. On being assured that his credentials were a good fit for this visa category, we proceeded with the formalities of countersigning an attorney-client agreement. In preparing our client’s NIW petition, we noted several important points regarding his laudable research career:

  • Our client had secured an M.Sc. in electrical engineering, which armed him with the practical and theoretical know-how to conduct impactful research. After careful perusal of his achievements, our team convinced the USCIS that our client’s work in his area is of great importance because it enables the efficient and timely analysis of big data, especially in businesses, and because it increases cyber security measures through which to protect people and their data.
  • Our client’s scholarly contributions were also significant and comprised 6 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (5 of them first-authored) and 1 US Patent. The fact that 5 of these published articles were first authored further pointed to our client’s caliber as a researcher. Moreover, his published articles had collectively garnered 112 citations at the time of filing. We also noted the 5 times our client assessed the work of his peers.
  • Incorporating dependent and independent recommendation letters in the petition dossier is a standard practice of our firm as these letters undoubtedly influence the outcome of I-140 petitions. To this end, we advised our client to collect recommendation letters from other computer engineering experts. The 4 recommendation letters he collected bolstered his case, as is evidenced by the words of appreciation included in one of these letters:

“There is a great need for advanced research to align machine learning and data processing technologies with eye movement recognition to ensure accuracy. [Client] is at the forefront of such technological advancement.”

After obtaining all the relevant documents, we filed a very concise and comprehensive NIW petition which was approved in 9 months and 25 days. We congratulate our client as he celebrates the good news, and we thank him for choosing us for his I-485 applications.
