Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research fellow with a Ph.D. in climate and space sciences and engineering and scientific computing retained the North America Immigration Law Group to assist him file another I-140 petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) category after successfully acquiring an NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval back in 2022 with our diligent team’s help. Since we were aware of his skills and knowledge in the space science field, we expanded on the plausible supposition that he would continue contributing significantly to the field here in the United States.

Therefore, we sought to emphasize his achievements in his EB1A application, which will be sent to the USCIS for additional assessment of his qualifications:

  • Firstly, we outlined his research which focused on developing novel numerical models, such as the Flexible Exascale Kinetic Simulator (FLEKS), for simulating space physics and improving space weather forecasting, and we concluded further that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including enhancing space weather forecasting capability, mitigating solar flare impacts on satellite and communication systems, and improving the understanding of the underlying physics of solar activities.
  • In addition, we highlighted the 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published in highly acclaimed journals, which accumulated 219 citations from at least 24 countries. As a result, his work has received more citations than one might anticipate during the past several years, placing it among the most cited in the field. Because of this, it can be objectively confirmed that he has produced notable unique contributions, as attested to by his publications, as his accomplishments in the field of space research have gained widespread recognition and reliance.
  • Also, we specified that he has conducted 21 peer reviews to date. This objective evidence proves his active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field of space science.
  • Furthermore, his study has been funded by both the National Science Foundation and NASA to develop more effective methods for space weather forecasting. Thus, he is undoubtedly one of the top scientists operating in the field of space science today.

Moreover, we included 6 recommendation letters in his EB1A petition packet to bolster his case even further. Therefore, they confirmed how highly skilled researchers in this field are essential to the United States, and our client is one of the best and brightest. It would be extremely challenging, if not impossible, to find another researcher who could make the same valuable contributions to this critical research area. Experts concur that his continued involvement is paramount to the overall success of space weather forecasting and modeling. With his past and present accomplishments, it is evident that he is poised to continue providing significant benefits to the United States.

Fortunately, we were successful in convincing the USCIS of our client’s research and that his entry would substantially benefit prospectively the United States. We are happy that our client was approved in just 28 days. We would like to express our gratitude to him for choosing our law firm as we believe that our contribution was a significant factor in his success.
