Case Summary:

Braced with a Ph.D. in Physics, a researcher from China hired NAILG to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Our expert team commenced evaluating his credentials, and we affirmed that he is a highly qualified advanced degree scientist with extensive experience in optical material design, optical AI algorithm development, and quantum communication hence we validated the provided proofs to be true and started building a case on his behalf. We detailed our client’s accomplishments in his area of expertise to the USCIS by elaborating the following details in his EB-1A petition packet:

  • Research Description: We described his research on the development of AI-enabled optical materials and AI-based quantum communication algorithms with improved efficiency and performance and how it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including economic and technological development as well as national security.
  • Citation Count, Publication & Peer-Review Experience: We noted the 632 times his publications attracted a wide audience and have been cited by researchers both in the United States and abroad. Also, we recorded the 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 preprint article he published in some of the judicious and high-impacting journals in his field. Further to corroborate his prominent standing in the scientific community, we mentioned the 40 times he conducted reviews for highly acclaimed journals.
  • Letters of Recommendation: We incorporated four recommendation letters acquired by our client from other superior researchers to support his extraordinary ability in the field of optical computing. One of his recommenders stated the below-mentioned, proving that our client is one of the foremost scientists working in the optical computing field today.

“[Client’s] research efforts and expertise in optical computing have provided faster, more efficient ways to teach artificial intelligence programs…As such, his work in advancing this technology using optical computing strategies offers an important asset to the United States, contributing to the safety and efficiency of the nation’s transportation industry.”
