Client’s Testimonial:

“I really appreciate your hard work.”

On July 29th, 2023, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Chinese Scientist II-Materials Scientist in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist II-Materials Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: July 29th, 2023

Processing Time: 31 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A Scientist II-Materials Scientist from China approached the North America Immigration Law Group to file his alien of extraordinary ability (EB1-A) petition. He has completed his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry and is currently employed in the field of materials science.

Since, a petition for the first preference category of individuals with extraordinary ability, (“EB1-A”), unlike the employment-based immigration visa under the second preference (“EB-2”) at least requires the following:

  • Evidence of original contributions, usually through publication, is of major significance in the foreign national’s science, scholastic, artistic, or athletic field.
  • No specific job offer/labor certification is required for a foreign person as long as he/she is entering the United States to continue work in the field where he/she has an extraordinary ability, therefore self-petition is allowed.
  • Performance in a significant role for organizations or establishments that have a distinguished reputation.
  • Receipt of a higher salary or remuneration than is usual in the field.
  • Other comparable evidence if the above types of evidence do not readily apply to the foreign national’s occupation.

Therefore, we included the following essentials from his academic and professional records in his petition packet to make a convincing case in his favor:

  • His research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the need for high energy density and more efficient energy systems to facilitate greenhouse gas reductions, the demand for next-generation low-cost and high-efficiency rechargeable batteries, and the necessity for adopting green energy technologies into industries worldwide for sustainable outcomes.
  • His research has resulted in 45 peer-reviewed scientific articles and patents, being cited 1,379 times in at least 54 countries.
  • He has conducted at least 24 reviews for at least 4 journals.
  • His study has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This funding serves as clear evidence of the merit of his work in advancing knowledge related to the design of energy conversion electrocatalysts, which are essential for converting CO2 into economically valuable products and for achieving sustainable energy outcomes.

Therefore, our client’s research has advanced knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of anionic redox reactions in the activation and stabilization mechanism, which is essential for enhancing the energy density of cathode materials in batteries.

Four fellow experts in the field further provided insight into the significance of his continuing research in the field, one of whom remarked:

“…[Client’s] research contributes to the United States’ ability to satisfy the requirements of Net Zero by 2050 through revolutionary battery material designs. By implementing high energy density and more efficient energy systems into vehicles and electrical power plants, he is providing the United States with exciting avenues for sustainable research.”

Finally, he achieved his EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval in just 31 days (thanks to premium processing). We are happy to have been a part of his successful journey and wish him a prosperous life ahead.
