Case Summary:

Back in February 2022, our client from India, holding a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering hired the North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf.

She held a position as a postdoctoral research associate in her chosen field of materials science and is one of the few leading experts who earned a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study. Within a few months, we worked diligently with our esteemed client to obtain and revise strong letters of recommendation from experts in her field. Through the recommendation letters, we set out to decisively prove the exceptional caliber of her work. To further impress upon the reviewing officer her rare yet vital skills, her impressive record of merits, and her unique knowledge relevant to her current and future work, our legal team also assisted her in compiling documentation of some of her work’s international acclaim, and achievements that have been recognized in the field through implementation by others and extensive citation of her work.

Thus, we put together a potential strategy for her EB1A case and listed the following information in the respective cases:

  • We noted her active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field i.e. she has conducted 10 peer reviews to date.
  • In addition to directly advancing her research, focusing on investigating density defects in perovskite films, she has actively engaged her peers in the field of materials science by authoring and co-authoring 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles that have been published in international journals. Moreover, her work has attracted a wide audience and has been cited 309 times by peers using her prior findings to make additional discoveries related to projects of their own in at least 32 countries.
  • Moreover, her perovskite solar cells research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the need to switch global energy reliance from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy sources to prevent the most severe impacts of climate change.
  • To boost the aforementioned, we incorporated the obtained letters of recommendation from her fellow experts. One of her recommenders stated:

“[Client] is a high-caliber scholar in materials science with exemplary qualifications that have enabled her to substantially advance approaches to the regeneration of commodifiable perovskite solar cell (PSC) materials. In addition, her many published works have been praised in the form of copious citations, with her findings having been deployed by others seeking to substantiate their work. In short, she is an admirable academic whose research pursuits are of marked value to the United States.”

Our attorneys and team members with the help of our client, efficiently prepared all of the evidence crucial to successfully petitioning for an EB-1A. Using the evidence we had gathered, proving that our client has made original contributions of major significance in the field of materials science and that her future stay in the United States will substantially benefit prospectively the United States. As experts in her field have stated in their reference letters, she possesses an extraordinary ability in her chosen field.

In December 2022, we filed her EB-1A petition to the USCIS, and in early mid-March 2023, we received her EB-1A case approval. We were extremely happy for our client and were pleased to have helped her avoid the labor certification and permanent job offer requirements of other regular employment-based immigrant petitions. She was similarly overjoyed, and we wish her the best of luck in her continued endeavors in the field of materials science.
