General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: March 25th, 2022

Processing Time: 28 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

The EB1-A or Alien of Extraordinary Ability visa is one of the highly specialized types of visa for those nonimmigrant individuals who can prove that their expertise in any given area of study is extraordinary. One such individual is our EB1-A client, an expert in materials science from China. He has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in this area of study and is especially well-known for research into high-performance catalysts for fuel cells as clean power generation sources.

Our team ensured the success of his case by gathering relevant information from his academic and professional documents. This search yielded the following facts for his petition letter:

  • Our client’s research has been directly supported by 3 major institutions, namely the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Department of Energy (DOE), and the National Science Foundation (NSF), proving that his continued efforts are advancing scientific developments deemed important by the United States government.
  • The field has recognized his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 21 times.
  • His research work has resulted in 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles.
  • These works have been cited 789 times by researchers from at least 44 countries. In fact, he is one of the top 1% of most highly cited authors publishing on topics in materials science, fuel cells, and nanostructure over the past 8 years according to Microsoft Academic.
  • He also collected 4 letters of recommendation from dependent and independent experts in his field. One of them had the following to say about his work:

“[Client’s] work on energy conversion and electrocatalysis in relation to hydrogen fuel cells and clean hydrogen production addresses exactly this national interest. His work is actively helping to lower the cost of these technologies to increase their feasibility and lower total greenhouse gas emissions. [Client’s] research also impacts the production of other non-hydrogen renewable power sources, such as methanol and ethanol, as seen in his studies to successfully develop those types of catalysts as well. [Client’s] innovations have greatly advanced the performance and availability of clean energy sources in the United States, and it is in the nation’s best interests to retain his presence in the scientific community.”

All of this evidence was thus fully supported and corroborated by these 4 letters from internationally recognized experts in the field who have used his work in their own research endeavors and attested to its influence and major significance. The totality of this evidence showed that he is one of that small percentage who has risen to the very top of his field and has sustained both national and international acclaim. This is what helped him win the approval in just 28 days. We are proud of having represented him and we wish him the very best in life.
