Case Summary:

For this EB-2 NIW case, we worked closely with a Research Scientist in the field of Mechanical Engineering. In his research endeavors, our client has developed novel control techniques that minimize energy use without compromising high-throughput performance. Our client’s work has resulted in the enhancement of machine performance while conserving fuel power. His research efforts have revolutionized various sectors of engineering, including robotics, mechanics, and thermodynamics. Additionally, his collaborations with private corporations have contributed to the United States’ efforts in optimizing energy production while minimizing energy waste.  The importance of his work to the national interest was endorsed by an independent recommender, who stated, “Control systems can be very complicated, but the truth is that they are a basic component of the technology we use every day. This means that research like [Client’s], which improves the performance of control systems, is essential to the improvement of the technology that we come into contact with the most. Furthermore, control systems are also important parts of more advanced technology that is still in development.” His cutting-edge research has culminated in numerous conference proceedings, one book currently in press, and 12 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts that were published in the top journals of his field. These publications have been cited 335 times by independent researchers worldwide, and the demand for his research has resulted in numerous invitations to present his work at highly distinguished international conferences, demonstrating the global significance of his contributions. With the extensive and thorough documentation that we provided, we were able to prove that our client’s technological advancements and continued research have substantial merits for our country and the scientific community as a whole, thus he has served the nation to a significantly greater degree than that of others with similar education and experience. We were met with success when his NIW petition was approved in 5 months and 15 days. Furthermore, our client was able to assume the priority date of his spouse’s country of birth through provisions that are granted by the rule of cross-chargeability.
