Success Stories: Our Team of Experts Help Win an EB1-B Approval for an Assistant Professor in Fluid Mechanics Hailing from China


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for all the help.”

On August 24th, 2021, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Fluid Mechanics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Fluid Mechanics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: August 24th, 2021

Processing Time: 4 months, 15 days

Case Summary:

In April of 2021, an assistant professor in fluid mechanics from China came to North America Immigration Law Group seeking our help with his EB1-B (Extraordinary Researcher) petition. So we had to employ our team to look at his background and check if his claims to this category were substantial. We quickly found that he has made substantial contributions to the field of fluid mechanics. Specifically, his specialized research has focused on the physics of fluid flow and collective motion. His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the behavior of super-hydrophobic coatings for utilization in marine vessels, three-dimensional particle measurement imaging, and swarm behavior for both wildlife and robotics.

In addition to this, his research has garnered significant attention from leading research-focused agencies. This research endeavor led to the United States Office of Naval Research granting him funding for the continuation of his study on anti-biofouling properties and lifetime features of super-hydrophobic surfaces in marine environments. Considering the prestige of the Office of Naval Research, this funding again confirms the critical nature of his research and shows how valued his findings are in the United States. Furthermore, as a result of this research endeavor, he has been the recipient of a National Science Foundation. This funding supports him in further studies on the fundamental hydrodynamic interactions between turbulent flows and super-hydrophobic surfaces and he serves as the principal investigator of this endeavor. This was used by one of his recommenders to say the following about his work:

“[The client] has garnered nearly $300 thousand in external grant funding within less than a two-year employment period. [Client’s] most recent research, funded by National Science Foundation, focuses on the hydrodynamic interactions between the water-repellent surface and turbulent flows. [Client’s] will use his expertise in optical measurements and fluid dynamics to guide the development of novel drag reduction techniques. [Client’s] research outcome will have profound impacts on the energy savings in United State marine industry.”

On the other hand, throughout his education and work in his current position, he has made and continues to make original and substantial contributions to the field of endeavor. This has led to an extensively documented record of authorship in his field of endeavor. As evidence of this research success, his work has resulted in 16 peer-reviewed scientific articles that have been cited 186 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar. These citations come from independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of his work. He is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. He has already conducted at least 30 reviews.

In the petition packet we also included 4 letters of recommendation from other experts in the field, one of which is quoted below:

“[The client’s] developments have profound implications for the United States marine industry. As I mentioned earlier, friction drag causes marine vessels to expend excessive amounts of fossil fuels and emit considerable amounts of carbon dioxide into the Earth’s atmosphere. By reducing the impact of friction drag on the speed and maneuverability of marine vessels, [the client] has eliminated the need for excess fuel burning. Since fuel costs typically represent more than 50% of the total running costs of a ship, it is fiscally advantageous to reduce fuel usage as much as possible. [the client’s] research is a crucial step toward that goal.”

We are thus thankful to him for having allowed us to help him with this case and we wish him the very best in life.
