On May 18th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Indiana

Approval Notice Date: May 18th, 2021

Case Summary:

Our client, a postdoctoral scholar, hired us to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) back in 2020, and his NIW got approved in 13 months and 7 days. Despite a long wait, he was satisfied with our diligent service and while his NIW was pending he decided to retain us for another petition under the I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category.

Since we were aware of our client’s proposed research and other accomplishments in the field of electrical engineering, it was simple for us to articulate his EB1A case as ascertaining as possible. The most important factors to note for achieving the EB1A approval are as follows:

Qualification, Research Summary, and Funding: Our client is a holder of a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and inclined to continue supporting the a satellite mission, which addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including developing calibration algorithms and technical applications for microwave remote sensor technology and applied electromagnetics with uses in environmental research and remote damage assessment. Also, his research project has been supported with funding grants by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, clearly promoting national space-oriented interests. Therefore, his impressive educational background, strong record of past successes, recognition of expertise by journals seeking his services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to his current and future work confirms that not only does he qualify as an alien of extraordinary ability but also that his entry will considerably benefit the United States.

Citation Count & Projects: As above mentioned, we specified the 191 times his work was cited, exerting a strong influence on his peers from notable international institutions from at least 21countries. Also, the 3 of his key projects have been included as evidence of his contributions to and expertise in the field of electrical engineering. These project cases are complemented by expert commentaries that highlight his use of innovative methodologies, the nature of his breakthroughs, and the ways that his unique findings have been applied throughout the field.

Publication & Peer-Review Experience: We highlighted the 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 14 conference papers, published in some of the most distinctive journals, ensuring that the high rate and quality of his publication should be considered a significant accomplishment. Additionally, we noted that our client judged the work of his peers for five remarkable journals 32 times. Since peer review is an essential step in the scientific publication process, he has used his expertise in electrical engineering to complete peer review for several top-tier journals in remote sensing, which is an indication that he is one of the top-notch researchers in this subject.

Recommendation Letter: To support our client’s petition further, we included 4 recommendation letters obtained by him from other noteworthy researchers in the field stating how our client’s remarkable attributes would be a significant asset to any research setting and thus set our client apart as an essential researcher in the field today. According to two of his recommenders:

“Having worked closely with [client], I can personally attest to his exceptional skillset and expertise. He has far surpassed any reasonable expectations for a scientist in this area, and he is sure to produce equally beneficial work in the years ahead.”
“In sum, [client] is conducting cutting edge research that benefits science in countless ways. Few of his peers can presently match his record of successes and acclaim, making him a highly valued member in the field of electrical engineering.”
