Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law Group–, we recently received an EB1B approval for an Assistant Professor in the field of Operations Research and Industrial Engineering. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His specialized research has focused on the related areas of supply chain management, logistics management, and operations management. This field is concerned with using mathematical modeling, analytical methodologies, and computer tools to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of large-scale operations for a variety of purposes, including health emergency preparedness, energy efficiency, improved customer service, and improved supply chain effectiveness. His research work had resulted in 9 publications and 24 conference proceedings and presentations. He had also served as the referee of 12 journals and conferences at the time we filed the case. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 24 citations to his work by independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of his work. The petitioner in this case was a university. The significance of the beneficiary’s research is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “He showed the semi open models provide more accurate time estimates for the sojourn time of a kanban card and for a number of other key performance measures. This was confirmed through a robust analysis of the relative performance of these two models performed by [client], and it has improved our ability to accurately model CONWIP systems. After a RFE was issued in this case, we accepted the case for representation and provided additional evidence to successfully demonstrate that this beneficiary is indeed qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher, given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.   Consequently, including the time taken for us to respond to the RFE, his case was approved in 5 months and 29 days.
