Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow contacted our law firm to help him establish his significant contributions to the U.S. by filing for an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We presented his exceptional professional background and unparalleled experience important to his current and future work at the USCIS.

Upon reviewing his credentials, we found that our client is a Ph.D. in materials science and has accomplished a great publication record in his field. His research resulted in:

  • 27 peer-reviewed scientific articles and these papers have been published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals in the field of materials engineering.
  • He has conducted at least 91 reviews for journals to date and his work has been cited by other scholars in numerous published articles as well.
  • According to Google Scholar, his work has been cited 722 times in at least 42 countries.

Furthermore, his research on materials with innovative and improved properties addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including efficient energy use and storage, as well as economic output and innovation in the aerospace industry. His strong background in mechanical properties testing, Li-ion battery assembly and testing, and optical microscopy have allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming materials with innovative and improved properties research and technologies.

His case was further supported by including four recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field. One of the recommenders stated:

“To conclude, please allow me to reiterate my statement that the United States must do all it can to retain [client]. He is an immensely talented researcher operating at the very top of his field, as evidenced by his impressive innovations and extensive citation and publication records. There are very few scientific minds today who are capable of making significant advancements in such a broad range of topics. As such, I must ask you to support his continued research within the United States.”

Our team’s efforts successfully paid off in conveying to the USCIS that our client’s impressive background, strong record of past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work indicate not only that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will substantially benefit prospectively the United States.

We would like to congratulate him on securing EB1A approval and thanks to the Premium Processing service, he received his approval in only 30 days. We wish him to receive his green card as soon as possible.
