Case Summary:

The EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) immigration category demands a highly specific kind of applicants because USCIS wants the petitioner to prove their extraordinary ability and the ongoing value of their work to the United States. So, a recognized Researcher and Assistant Professor seemed like a perfect fit. When our client approached us to file his petition on his behalf, we made certain that we did not miss any details from his illustrious academic and professional career thus far. We assured his success by including certain things in his application, such as his publication count, his citation records, and his experience as a reviewer among other things.

  • He is a highly qualified advanced degree scientist with extensive experience in photovoltaics and photoactive devices. This strong academic background has laid the foundation for his current position as an assistant research professor in a highly ranked public college .
  • His work has been extensively recognized by independent scholars, and all of his recommenders are internationally renowned experts in the field, belonging to elite institutions from around the globe.
  • He has actively engaged his peers in the field of materials engineering by authoring and co-authoring 69 peer-reviewed scientific articles that have been published in international journals of repute.
  • His overall work related to the improvement of photovoltaics and photoactive materials has been cited a massive 3,678 times by peers using his prior findings to make additional discoveries related to the efficiency of organic photovoltaics, high fill factor solar cells, and switchable two-terminal transparent optoelectronic devices. He is one of the top 1% most highly cited authors publishing on topics in Materials Science.
  • The field has recognized his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 30 times.
  • Finally, he was able to receive financial funding for his research from his university of employment indicating that his work was valuable for such a prestigious institution and thus for the whole of the United States.

We are thus glad to have represented him in his EB-1A petition at USCIS and we are certain that his work will help progress the field of materials engineering.
