Client’s Testimonial:

“I really appreciate your help with my case.”

On March 18th, 2021 and March 30th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Field of Material Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Material Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Scholar

Country of Origin: China

Approval Notice Date: March 18th, 2021 (EB-1A) and March 30th, 2021 (NIW)

Processing Time: 4 months, 12 days (EB-1A) and 7 months, 7 days (NIW)

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral scholar with a doctor of philosophy degree in physical chemistry initially contacted us to help her file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, and also decided to retain our services for her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We customized both the petitions, and successfully both are approved consecutively.

While preparing her NIW & EB-1A cases, we aimed at assessing her academic and professional accolades and emphasizing her achievements to USCIS.

  • We summarized her specialized research focusing on the fabrication and characterization of photonic and plasmonic nanostructures and has already greatly advanced the national interest through her design and synthesis of novel hollow/porous nanomaterials, magnetic/plasmonic nanocomposites, and nano-photocatalyst systems. Her research undoubtedly addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including the ability to achieve a more complete understanding of the atomic, electronic, magnetic, and structural dynamics of materials and in turn, design and synthesize state-of-the-art nanomaterials with unique properties for specific technological applications.
  • We observed the impressive 1,639 citations her work gathered from many researchers from around the world who have relied upon her discoveries to further their own important research. We have noted that her publications have been cited in at least 65 countries. Upon analyzing her citation record, it is clear that she has prompted major advances in the development of state-of-the-art nanomaterials and nanoparticles with unique structures and compositions for use in a diverse range of fields and applications.
  • We also recorded the 32 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 5 book chapters published by her in well-reputable journals in her field. Besides, we confirmed that she has already conducted 20 reviews as an active peer-reviewer in the scientific community for highly acclaimed journals. The continuous invitations from journals to conduct peer review confirm the value of her as a recognized scientist in her field.

Both the petition contained a wealth of information corroborating her work’s impressive background, strong record of her past achievements, recognition of expertise by journals seeking her services to review manuscripts, and unique knowledge relevant to her current and future work.

“[Client’s] work on nanoparticles is undeniably useful in improving the quality of sensors that detect hazardous gas and keep Americans safe. Clearly, through her work, she has provided the United States with foundational findings that have implications for the health and safety of thousands of Americans.”

The above-mentioned excerpt is from one of the four recommendation letters provided by our client. Our client obtained the letters from other well-known researchers in the field, and these letters succinctly explained why our client’s stay in the United States is in the best interest of the country.

We are delighted that our client secured both EB1A and NIW petition approvals just 12 days apart. Special thanks to our team members who helped our client to achieve both the approvals successfully without fail. Our unique legal strategies always help the petitioners to get their petitions approved and move next to the green card process. We would like to thank our client for choosing us to represent both of her applications and allowing us to be a part of this victorious story.
