I am currently looking at self-petitioning for an EB-2 visa under Advanced Degree. I have worked in the Telecommunications sector in the UK for almost 6 years with a STEM degree as a data scientist focussed on ML applied research with one peer reviewed publication, a number of patents and few presentations at conferences and white papers in industry journals. I recently completed my MSc (as of 2022) in DS and would like to self-petition for an EB-2 visa by filing an I-400 with National Interest Waiver. Is this a viable option for someone of a similar background?
EDIT: I was wondering whether something like a general advancing the field of AI/ML research would be a good enough basis without extensive research record.
