Case Summary:

A well-known associate professor based in Missouri reached out to North America Immigration Law Group to help her file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition. Perceiving that EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, she needed her employer’s assistance before hiring us. Once her employer-provided us with the necessary official procedures required to file the petition, our team began constructing a strong EB-1B case for our client. Here are the selected bits of information that we incorporated in her petition:

  • Proposed Research: To establish to the USCIS that our client’s work is of intrinsic value to the United States, we had to understand every aspect of it. We thoroughly reviewed her research on the transport properties of nanostructures. We also noted that her research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the interactions between various materials at the micro and nano levels for optimizing nanomaterials and enhancing a wide range of electronic and optoelectronic devices.
  • Peer Review Experience: At the time of filing, our client had already engaged in 5 reviews of highly acclaimed journals and conferences. This remarkable record exhibited her skills as a preeminent researcher in the field of physics.
  • Citation and Publication Count: Thanks to Google Scholar references, we ascertained that our client’s 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles had collected 111 citations.
  • Recommendation Letters: To further boost our client’s EB-1B petition, we included recommendation letters signed by five other experts in the field who were familiar with her work. The below-stated excerpt is from one of the letters:

“As an expert with significant experience working with semiconductors and
similar devices, I do not hesitate to say that [our client] is a leader in her area and that the continuation of her work is integral to progress in both academia and industry.”

Thanks to PP (Premium Processing), our client’s case was adjudicated within 6 months without any request for evidence (RFE). PP is a paid option proposed by the USCIS that permits petitioners to enjoy expedited adjudication. We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1B petition approval and thank her for trusting us to be a part of her success story.
