Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the opportunity to work with was a research coordinator from China in the field of environmental engineering. Specifically, our client’s specialized research has focused on microbial ecology, wastewater treatment, anaerobic digestion, and alternative fuel production. His work had resulted in 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles and numerous presentations at national and international conferences; at the time that his case was filed, his publications had been cited at least 95 times by independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of his work. He had also reviewed 20 manuscripts for 20 distinctive, internationally-circulated journals. His superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, “[Client] has offered a challenge to the traditional acetate utilization theory, establishing that Methanosaeta is the more favorable one for acetate use. This work bolsters our understanding and aids simulating greenhouse gas emission. This work is a breakthrough, and shows that [client] is a prime expert in research interests such as this.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of environmental engineering, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in 3 months and 22 days.
