Case Summary:

Yet another example of our firm’s proficient record, we helped a research assistant from Iran to obtain the NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval with our comprehensive petition packet. According to the matter of Dhanasar (The analytical framework for assessing eligibility for National Interest Waiver), we highlighted his qualifications, experience in the field with both substantial merit and national importance, and his proposed research work as well as how it benefits the United States.

Gladly, his meticulous academic background, holder of an M.Sc. in computer science intends to continue his research on developing novel algorithms to improve accuracy, efficiency, and utility in artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, including pest management, invasive species reduction, mobile robot navigation, made sure that he deserved the NIW success.

Thus, our objective was to organize his petition packet in the best possible manner to convince the USCIS, and for the same, we demonstrated his research which is of great importance because it advances the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning. Therefore, his research is vital in the U.S.

Also, we noted the 44 citations amassed from the 5 peer-reviewed conference papers (4 of them first-authored) he published; these papers have been published in the top-most journals in our client’s field. This clearly signifies how his work has influenced many of his peers in the field. In addition, we recorded the 3 times our client judged the work of other experts in the field, thereby confirming his acknowledged expertise and elevated position in the field of computer science.

In order to strengthen his case further, we added 5 recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the research community. They confirmed the significance of our client’s research, which was also granted funding from prestigious national research organizations, and verified its relevance and utility not only to the field of computer science but also to the technological objectives of the United States. One of his recommenders also said, “[client’s] research in this area is vital to advancing these aims in modern robotics and AI, and I urge that he be retained to continue his research in the United States.”

Not that long ago, our client received the good news that USCIS had approved his EB-2 (NIW) (National Interest Waiver) petition without issuing any further request for evidence, proving that our team’s effort in building a coherent case on our client’s behalf was successfully accepted. We sincerely thank our client for choosing us for his NIW case and also for retaining our services for his I-485 application.
