Client’s Testimonial:

“Very excited to know that our I-140 petition got approved. Can’t thank you guys enough for the diligence and perfection you put together in preparing the petition. Big thank you.”

On February 22nd, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: N/A

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: February 22nd, 2016

Processing Time: 11 days (Premium Processing requested)


Case Summary:

“Firstly, in the automobile, power, heat treating, and metal industries it is essential to have carbon monoxide and oxygen sensors that work quickly, effectively, and selectively in very harsh environments. The ever-increasing production and consumption of goods from these industries can be dangerous or inefficient without effective ways of detecting things such as harmful car exhaust emissions, false fire alarms in flights, and gases in energy combustion chambers. [Client’s] gas sensors directly serve these purposes by providing highly selective and convenient methods for the detection of two very common gases.”

This strong statement is one of many made in support of our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. It is taken from one of several recommendation letters volunteered by experts in his field of materials science. Our client’s research focuses on the development of novel materials and device models for industrial applications, and is used to progress the United States automobile, energy, and medical industries. These letters attest to the importance of our client’s work not just to the nation’s industries, but also to the realm of science.

“[Client] has remained very relevant to the academic sphere of materials science as well, publishing a career total of over twenty papers on topics ranging from gas sensor designs, to the applications of oxygen sensors, to the characteristics of various important ceramic materials. This is a significant number and testifies to [Client’s] high level of productivity in the field.”

Another one of our client’s recommenders highlighted his professional achievements, which at the time of filing, stood at 762 citations to his work, 21 published papers, and 4 instances of peer review service. These numbers serve as evidence that our client’s insights are important to other researchers who are also advancing the field of materials science.

“[Client] and his work stand out among his peers’ as especially diligent and resourceful. Tracing his career as a materials scientist, it is easy to see that he is focused to moving forward in his research, and to advancing the entire field as well.”

We are pleased that our client’s strong credentials and our diligent efforts convinced the USCIS that our client is continuously progressing his field and thus, deserves to have his I-140 approved. Thanks to Premium Processing, the USCIS made their decision in just 11 days. Our client recently retained our expert services to help him file I-485 applications for himself and his family. We look forward to helping them with the final step of the green card process.
