Case Summary:

An associate professor based in Malaysia with a Ph.D. in wave propagation requested us to help him in building an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition to submit to USCIS. With several years of experience in getting EB-1A approvals for our clients, we advised him to provide us with the required testimonies to ensure his EB1A success. We determined our client’s expertise field, research background, and additional accomplishments, authenticating his extraordinary ability to continue his research work here in the U.S. Soon, we consented to our attorney-client contract and filed our client’s EB-1A case, highlighting the below-mentioned attributes.

  • We briefed his research focusing on the electromagnetic properties of nanocomposites and has already greatly advanced the national interest by increasing enhanced oil recovery efficacy and how it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including energy scarcity and electromagnetic pollution.
  • We observed the 750 citations his work amassed at the time of filing. The citations to his research come from at least 55 countries according to Google Scholar tool, thereby highlighting that these publications have been cited by both national and international experts, and our client’s research works are highly relied upon in the field of nanotechnology.
  • We also noted the 109 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 5 book chapters, and 1 patent published by him in highly impacting journals in his field. Further, we validated that he is an active peer-reviewer in the scientific community for highly acclaimed journals, and he has already conducted 75 reviews. This clearly displays that our client has served on an editorial board as well as a judge of the work of others, and his peer-review contributions are established by expert statements.

Corroborating the aforementioned facts, we attached four recommendation letters in his petition packet. He received these letters from fellow experts in the field, confirming the exceptional value that his research holds for the country, and indicating that he will continue to produce high-quality and impactful research in the future as well. One of them also remarked:

“As a whole, based on his exemplary research career so far, it is evident that [client] will continue to make remarkable contributions to nanotechnology research in the future. Therefore, the United States is well-served by taking advantage of his unique skillset and facilitating his employment in the country.”

We are glad to state that once again we convinced the USCIS of our client’s research having international influence, as well as it benefits the applicability to the United States’ research endeavors. Our entire team congrats our client for achieving his EB-1A approval in just 12 days with the help of the Premium Processing service which expedites the petitioners’ cases. We would also like to thank him for allowing us to be a part of this success story.
