Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you all for the help in the last two years!!!”

On November 9th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Associate Professor in the Field of Architecture (Approval Notice).

General Field: Architecture

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Professor

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: November 9th, 2021

Processing Time: 1 month, 2 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Peer review is considered “the only widely accepted method for research validation,” with publishers relying on the peer review process “to uphold the quality and validity of individual articles and the journals that publish them”. This being the case, our client from China, an associate professor in architecture clearly has been recognized as a valuable asset to her field, as she has already conducted some 30 reviews for peer scholars.

Similarly, she has also actively engaged her peers in the field of architecture by authoring and co-authoring 65 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (18 of them first-authored) and 2 books that have been published in international journals and conference proceedings ). At the same time, these publications have been cited 530 times in 40 countries around the world by other scholars in her field, once again showing how reliable her work is in the area of architecture.

On the other hand, she has also received several major funding from institutions of national and international reputation such as the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National Natural Science Foundation of Tianjin, and the National Key Research and Development Program of China.

Thus, she can be easily counted as one of the few leading sustainable design experts in architecture, and she has come to be especially well-known for her work on the incorporation of natural climate resources into building design to produce a comfortable indoor atmosphere while avoiding the utilization of conventional heating and cooling systems. This is why it wasn’t difficult for her to obtain recommendations from experts, one of which said:

“ [Client’s] work on sustainable building design and materials facilitates the growth of the green building sector in the U.S. and in other countries around the world. Her investigations into recycled concrete and climatic design theory are critical to sustaining future green architecture projects in the U.S. and reducing the environmental impact of construction.”

We are thus proud of having had the opportunity to represent her for her EB1-A petition to USCIS. And we also thank her for trusting us with her NIW petition which recently got approved as well.
