Case Summary:

An assistant professor of civil engineering from India was our client in this case. In his research he had focused specifically on developing transportation  models, and produced 32 peer-reviewed journal articles as well as 25 peer-reviewed conference proceedings and 18 conference presentations. At the time we filed his case, his publications had received 192 citations from independent researchers around the world, showing the wide recognition of and reliance upon these publications in the field as a whole. We successfully demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would be of great benefit both to the rest of his field and to the United States as a whole. The importance of his work received this endorsement from an independent recommender: “[Client] was able to clearly reveal that freight systems would experience a great deal less disruption in goods movement as well as significant cost savings if they invested in modern freight tracking and communications.” Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW petition was approved in seven months and thirteen days.
