Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group – represented a graduate research assistant in the field of Materials Science and Engineering who investigates research methods for the development of nanomaterial implantation in Li-ion batteries, as well as materials with solar-cell technology application materials. He had contributed towards high-temperature stable superparamagnetic nanomaterial development, the synthesis of nanomaterials with high lithium storage capacities, ultrasensitive Raman nanomotor sensors for biochemical applications, and the electronic properties of nanoentities with electrically driven rotation. His research had resulted in 6 presentations and 12 journal publications, which had been cited 252 times at the time of filing the case. This high number of citations clearly demonstrated that researchers in the field of Materials Science and Engineering rely on this client’s work. In addition to his research and publications, the client had reviewed 6 manuscripts at the time of filing his case. One of six independent recommenders explained: “…I am quite familiar with his publications on improving the storage capacity of lithium ion batteries, which, despite having only been written and published three years ago, have already had a tremendous influence on virtually every other scientist in the world interested in the same topic, myself included. Indeed, the research that led to these publications and presentations is groundbreaking in terms of the improvements to lithium ion battery power and energy efficiency it has led to…[Client] is an uncommonly talented scientist.” This EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition received approval 4 days after the USCIS received the Premium Processing request.
