Case Summary:

In April of 2021, a postdoctoral fellow in the field of entomology met us asking for help on his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case. So, once we had assured him that we would do everything in our power to make this journey a smooth one for him, we moved to make a well-grounded background study and then began with the attorney-client formalities.

  • Our team of experts took over the case preparation and used all the information that we had on his academic and professional background. This meant using this data in his petition to build a strong case in his favor.

The personalized petition included his citation records, peer reviews, and publication count. The details of the same are mentioned below:

  • He has conducted at least 30 reviews for at least 4 prestigious journals.
  • His work has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in the top-ranked journals of his field of endeavor.
  • His research has been cited 370 times in at least 34 countries according to Google Scholar.
  • He also served as a guest associate editor for the special research section in 1 journal.

Furthermore, he received his Ph.D. in biological science (chemical ecology) and his pest control and management research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including mitigating pest-related agricultural losses and limiting pest-related disease transmission. His strong background in pest control and management has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming pest control approaches.

  • Our client is particularly well-known for his contributions to evaluating the behavioral, chemical, and neurophysiology of the agricultural, urban and medically important pests to develop improved pest management strategies.

His work has thus been majorly significant, and his achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to address controlling urban, agricultural, and medically significant pest species.

Furthermore, leading researchers from top universities and research groups from the United States and abroad have submitted letters confirming him as an outstanding professor in his specialized field.

  • Two out of five of his recommenders have the following to say about the client:

“As one of the leading members of his field, [client] has contributed greatly to our knowledge of insect behaviors and how to use this information to combat harmful pests. His research, which has been featured in some of the most influential journals for entomology, constitutes a major contribution to the scientific community. It is with this in mind that I lend [client] my recommendation.”

“[Client] is one of the most influential and well-known researchers in the entomology field, and his research has considerable applications in controlling and eliminating the harmful effects of pests around the world. His knowledge of the underlying chemical processes in insect behavior sets him apart from others and allows him to consistently produce novel findings. Therefore, he ought to be given the opportunity to continue his research in the United States.”

We are certain that he is more than capable of furthering his knowledge base in the chosen field and continuing his work in the United States of America. Thanks to premium processing, he received his EB1-A approval in a shorter duration of time.

  • The best news is that he retained us for his I-485 application as well and the case has been approved afterwards.

We thus wish him the very best in his life and success in all the endeavors that he takes up soon.
