Case Summary:

“[Client’s] exceptional research qualifies him for continued research in the United States. His proven talents in the study of vector-borne disease, inter-species interactions, pest management, and community ecology ensure that his work will continue to be necessary to sustain continued momentum in the field of agricultural science and the successful development of control solutions and sustainable management practices that prevent pests and boost crop productivity.”

“Moreover, he employs a unique combination of advanced biochemical, genetic, and molecular approaches to conduct his valuable studies, which distinguishes him as a top researcher in his field. Therefore, it is vital that he continue his necessary work, which in turn supports the production of staple crops like maize in the United States.”

“His diverse approach to studying plant interactions with insect and pathogen pests has enabled him to develop comprehensive intervention recommendations that benefit the scientific community as well as the agricultural industry. Therefore, I strongly support [the client’s] case on the basis of the importance of his exceptional research to the United States.”

These are three excerpts taken from the letters of support that our client, an Indian postdoctoral research associate in agricultural science, was able to obtain at our request to corroborate his claim to the EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) request. These also came in handy while making supporting arguments for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. It was clear to us from the beginning that the case had merit as our team had done a background check and discovered that he is one of the few leading experts in agricultural science focused on vector-borne diseases, sustainable pest management, and ecology, and he has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in these areas of study. He has spent years investigating issues related to vector-borne diseases, sustainable pest management, and complex species interactions in food web ecosystems, and he is regarded as an authority in the field. The field has recognized his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 50 times.

In addition to directly advancing strategies to tackle vector-borne diseases, sustainable pest management, and methodologies to study ecosystem dynamics and complex species interaction through his original research and peer review service, he has actively engaged his peers in the field of agricultural science by authoring and co-authoring 22 peer-reviewed articles and one accepted article that have been published in international journals, and one book chapter. Moreover, these papers have been published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals in his field.

The researchers who cited his works hail from well-known international institutions such as National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (Pakistan), World Vegetable Center (Taiwan), La Mayora Experimental Station (Spain), and Jawaharlal Nehru University (India), etc. That is, his publications have been cited by researchers in at least 39 countries. And due to its great applicability in the field, his research in agricultural science has been cited 427 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles. These citations come from independent and leading researchers from well-regarded institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of his work. Furthermore, his study has received funding from the Department of Science and Technology in India. This funding supports projects that advance Indian science and technology, specifically those that relate to national needs.

Soon after his EB1-A case approval, we were also able to aid him in getting an NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. We are very pleased to have had this opportunity of helping him with his EB1-A and NIW cases. We thank him for continuing to trust us with his NIW case preparation, and we wish him the very best in all future endeavors.
