Case Summary:

A senior staff scientist from China hired us to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition back in 2019, and after receiving his NIW approval successfully, he was very impressed with our service that he decided to retain us for another petition under the I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. Since we were aware of our client’s research background and all the adjudication trends of USCIS, we articulated his EB1A case as unique as possible. The most important factors to note for achieving the EB1A approval are as follows:

Qualification, Research Summary, and Funding: Our client is a holder of a Ph.D. in chemical and environmental engineering, and he has been researching for many years in the field of chemical engineering, focusing on understanding mechanisms of next-generation cathode materials in lithium-ion batteries. His research certainly addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including the development of energy-efficient and sustainable energy sources. Also, his work was awarded a National Science Foundation grant, illustrating that he worked on a project of substantial national importance. Through his research, he has contributed to the automotive industry and the development of electric vehicles, confirming that he is among the top experts in his field and has already greatly profited the United States during his investigation.

Citation Count: We specified the 678 times his work was cited, exerting a strong influence
on his peers from notable international institutions from at least 41countries, as they consistently look to his methods and findings to inform and guide their studies indicates that he has made contributions of major significance to the development of the next-generation of rechargeable battery systems. This signifies the strength of his original conclusions and the utility of his findings.

Publication & Peer-Review Experience: In addition, we highlighted the 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 U.S. patent applications he published in some of the most distinctive journals in the field. Since these publications are known for having high standards for the articles that they accept, making their endorsement of our client’s work is strong evidence of its excellent quality. Besides, we noted that our client judged the work of his peers for notably acclaimed journals 50 times. Viewing the inherent value of his research in combination with his funding from a major national organization, his remarkable publication and citation record, and the high esteem the scientific community holds for his work authenticates that he is one of the foremost scientists working in the chemical engineering field today.

Recommendation Letter: To support our client’s petition further, we included 6 recommendation letters obtained by him from other remarkable experts in the field stating how our client has proven to be an indispensable resource for the United States and merits all necessary support to continue his research. According to one of the recommenders:

“I would like to again emphasize the critical importance of [client’s] research due to its prominence in facilitating the advancement of rechargeable batteries and energy storage. His chemical engineering work is essential to ongoing progress in renewable energy and energy reliability. Because he has significantly contributed to research on these topics and offered findings that have been fundamentally essential to ongoing research projects in the energy field, he has proven that the permanent acquisition of his expertise is strategically advantageous to the United States of America.”
