Case Summary:

Equipped with a B.S. in physics, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in condensed matter physics, a visiting scholar from China hired us to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. We evaluated her credentials as a part of our job before agreeing to countersign the client-attorney agreement. We discerned that her solid academic background, consistent and notable record of success, and influence in this area of study make her an invaluable resource to the United States. We affirmed to help her in winning the EB1A success and to do it, we were required to attach a sound wealth of information providing extraordinary benefits to the United States. Therefore, we added the following data in her petition packet:

  • We elucidated her research focusing on using rare earth elements, metal nanoparticle doping, and the embedding suffers layer method for modifying the behavior and capabilities of memory storage devices and reasoned that continuing to advance the field through fundamental and applied research is of immeasurable importance because it advances current flash memory devices and energy-storage devices, which positively impacts the global RAM market and technology sector in the U.S.
  • We also observed that her research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including high programming voltage and current leakage problems in flash memory devices. To prove, we added that her work has also received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province. Thus, her research being granted funding by leading governmental agencies speaks to her work’s national importance to the United States.
  • Besides, we recorded the 43 peer-reviewed scientific articles (19 of them first-authored) she published in some of the most discerning journals in her field, which altogether accumulated 617 citations. Her work is cited at a much higher rate than those of other researchers in the field in at least 45 countries. She is one of the top 1% most highly cited authors publishing on topics in materials science over the past 10 years according to Microsoft Academic tool. Her work has thus been majorly significant, and her achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts. Also, we detailed her peer-review participation as she completed 38 reviews for highly acclaimed journals with stringent publishing guidelines that enlist the services of only skilled researchers. Our client’s peer-review contributions are endorsed by expert statements and related objective evidence to prove her active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field.

“In the United States, storage memory has emerged as an extremely competitive and lucrative market…Through employing her expert knowledge of materials science, [client] has brought forward innovative components for resistive switching memory devices that substantially augment their performance, offering much-needed data and resources to American firms working on memory devices, which is essential in their development of competitive and market-ready technologies.”

The aforementioned excerpt has been extracted from one of the submitted four letters by our client, proving that the information provided in these letters establishes her as a leading figure in her chosen field, and the United States would be remiss if it did not seek to retain this talented scholar. We are glad that after thorough consideration, USCIS approved our client’s EB1A petition in less than 2 months. We truly thank her for choosing our law firm to represent her I-140 application and for allowing us to become a part of her success story.
