Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in engineering science and mechanics, a postdoctoral research fellow from India hired NAILG to prepare an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We commenced evaluating his credentials and discerned that his strong academic background and greatly documented record of authorship in the field of microfluidics engineering make him a definite resource to the United States. We agreed to assist him in achieving the EB1A petition approval. To confirm the case and submit it to the USCIS, we were needed to add relevant details based on our client’s accolades and achievements. Therefore, we incorporated the following information in his petition dossier:

  • We observed that his work suggests focusing on novel applications at the interface of microfluidics, acoustics, optics, and mathematics and addresses some of the most pressing issues in understanding effective methods for the development of microfluidic devices for biomedical applications.
  • Furthermore, we recorded the 28 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published in some of the most prestigious journals in the field. We also detailed our client’s peer-review participation as he completed 48 reviews for highly acclaimed journals.
  • Also, we included that his work gathered 2097 citations from independent and leading researchers from honored institutions around the world, symbolizing the major importance of his work. Moreover, his work has been clearly exceeding this threshold and his citation record is thus within the top 1% in the field of microfluidics engineering.
  • Our client also provided us with four recommendation letters obtained from his fellow superiors to complete his petition further. According to one of his recommenders:

“I argue that [client’s] presence in the United States is of the utmost value. He has positioned himself as an indispensable researcher and pioneer in microfluidics engineering, and his peers have come to rely on the high caliber of his data. It is uncommon to find a scientist that has reached the level of achievement that he has. Therefore, it is imperative that the U.S. supports his work as much as possible.”

Considering all the facts and information, USCIS adjudicated our client’s case, and successfully, permitted his EB1A approval. We genuinely thank him for choosing us to represent his case and would like to congratulate him on all his future endeavors.
