Case Summary:

Not long ago, a talented postdoctoral researcher from China asked us to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. He chose to file under Premium Processing and received the good news of his petition’s approval just a month later.

Our client’s research efforts are focused on developing new surfaces and materials to enhance energy efficiency and solve water issues for the United States. His work allows the nation to optimize power plant productivity, thermal management of aerospace and solar systems, and advanced cooling technologies of electronics. Besides demonstrating the significance of his work to various industries, we also illustrated our client’s scientific influence. We did this by helping our client obtain recommendation letters from several experts in his field of heat transfer and fluid mechanics, and we included these letters of support in the I-140 petition. According to one of these letters, “[Client] is a highly skilled and well-proven engineer that has indicated, through his portfolio and the scope of what he has accomplished, that he has the talent necessary to continue making a lasting impact on engineering, even through his current work. United States industries can greatly benefit from his continued work, as the projects I described on heat transfer are already very advantageous for electronics and aeronautical concerns.”  

We are pleased that the USCIS agreed with our presentation of our client’s skills and his valuable work. He is now well on his way through the complex process of getting a green card.
