“Thank you very much. It was great working with you.”

General Field: Computational Data Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: India

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Mexico

Approval Notice Date: May 26th, 2020

Processing Time: 9 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

Texas Service Center (TSC) found our client, an Indian postdoctoral researcher, to be a deserving candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). The fact that his work aids the United States in understanding complex biological systems and processes, such as the cause of chronic diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, through the application of molecular dynamics undoubtedly paved the way for EB-1A approval. Before establishing an attorney-client relationship, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) carefully studied our client’s credentials to determine their veracity. Once we were assured that his credentials qualified him for EB-1A, we counter-signed the retainer agreement and got to work building his case. Here are some of the key points we focused on:

  • Research Details: : In order to prove that our client’s work is important to the United States, we first had to account for and understand his research focus. Largely thanks to the comprehensive research summary which he provided us, we determined that his work is focused on developing novel algorithms in order to computationally reduce the amount of generated data from and costs of molecular dynamics simulations as well as analyzing the simulation data sets to obtain important insights into molecular processes. We established that his findings are essential to the nation due to their impact on the healthcare system and public health.
  • Citation Count and Publication:Our client’s extensive experience in the field of computational data had led to the publication of 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles, all of which had been cited a total of 351 times when we filed the case.
  • Peer Review Service: : To further illustrate our client’s leadership role in the field, we noted the 15 times he had conducted peer review for various high-impact scientific journals.
  • Third-party Support: Like any legal case, we had to present evidence to support our argument that our client deserved to get one step closer to a green card. We did this by urging our client to collect recommendation letters from a handful of his peers. These letters confirmed the value of our client’s work to the US and contained statements such as: “As such, [client’s] developments have supplied the scientific community with more efficient simulation methods and hold significant implications for biological studies in areas like cancer research. Given the foundational value and broad merit of his contributions, it is difficult to overstate the need for [client’s] computational data science research to continue without interruption.”
  • Visual Representation:In addition to carefully assembling the required documents to file the EB-1A petition on behalf of our client, our team has included customized figures and tables for visualization to indicate that our client’s publications have been cited at a much higher rate than those of other researchers in the field, distinguishing him from his peers. The visual presentation of the data has indeed further demonstrated and supported the argument in the petition letter drafted by us.

We congratulate our client for securing an EB-1A petition approval and we thank him for choosing to work with our law firm. It was a pleasure helping him with the first step of the green card process and we wish him the best with his continued research in the United States.
