Case Summary:

Our client in this case was a doctoral candidate whose research focused on improvements to cement rotary kiln operation and on elementary function approximation. We successfully demonstrated that his continued employment in his field would benefit the populace of the United States as a whole, as well as benefitting others in his field. To do this, we submitted extensive documentation of his highly significant contributions to his field, including 7 peer-reviewed publications. These publications had received a total of 33 citations at the time that we filed his case, nearly all of which were from independent researchers around the globe, demonstrating the wide recognition of and reliance upon our client’s publications in his field. An independent recommender described the importance of his work: “[Client] also development [sic] a method for detecting faults in kiln operations in real time. This is a major boon to the cement manufacturing industry, as even small-scale faults that go undetected until the final product emerges can mar cement quality to the point of making it unusable. Indeed, manual human examination is often inadequate for diagnosing problems during the cement mixing process due to the extreme complexity of the rotary kiln system. Fortunately, [Client] has offered a game-changing solution to this longstanding problem.” 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 eleven days.
