Case Summary:

Our EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) client from China is one of the few leading hazardous chemical detections and separation experts in analytical chemistry, and he has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. He is especially well-known for his research on gas chromatography stationary phases. He has been working as a senior scientist in the area for a significant period of time now.

Furthermore, his work has substantially improved the efficiency and accuracy of chemical separation and resulted in the development of novel chemical detection methods. This is why his past and present research has been funded by national organizations such as the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.

Two of the 4 letters of recommendation endorsed his work saying the following:

“Many American industries depend on advances in hazardous chemical separation and detection methods like those [the client] has pioneered, underscoring his immense value to the United States.”

“[The client’s] work in analytical chemistry stands out for many reasons, including its contributions to the American pharmaceutical industry, which is a major contributor to the economy of the United States. [The client’s] work on chemical separation and detection is critical to allowing the American pharmaceutical industry to remain at the forefront of research, a prerequisite to maintaining a dominant position in the global pharmaceutical market.”

Along with these he had published 19 peer-reviewed articles and 1 book chapter which had been cited 427 times already. He had also conducted reviews of 13 journal articles for peers in his field. Thus his case was already strong enough to pass the test set by the USCIS for the EB1-A criteria.

Therefore, our client’s work is dedicated to advances in analytical chemistry, which are matters of critical national importance. Researchers who are highly skilled in this area are thus crucial to the United States. As such, the very best and brightest researchers should be employed in these tasks, and he is one such researcher. We are glad we could be of aid to him in this entire process.
