Case Summary:

We were hired to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a postdoctoral researcher from Bangladesh. When our client contacted us, our expert team advised him of the needed paperwork. When our client submitted the relevant information, we started documenting a strong case on his behalf. Firstly, we reviewed his academic background and noted that he held a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and wants to continue his work on the biosynthesis and characterization of novel eco-friendly nanomaterial. Also, his research exhibits great importance because it has supported the production of nanomaterials, which are used throughout a wide range of applications. Nanotechnology is useful for medicine, transportation, energy, information technology, homeland security, environmental science, and more.

Moving ahead, we advised him to provide us with a few recommendation letters to support his case further, and he was able to obtain five such letters from other independent researchers in the field of chemical engineering. One of the researchers shared the following viewpoint on our client’s continued contribution to the U.S.:

“The problem of pollution is frequently discussed in the United States, but pollution resulting from scientific processes is less often a topic of discussion. Scientists are beginning to realize the impact of their work on the environment, and many are also endeavoring to decrease the environmental footprints of their work. [Client’s] methodology provides a facile approach to decreasing the impact… his work provides a way forward for researchers interested in advancing research into nanoparticles but also keenly aware of the consequences of their work.”

The other recommenders also corroborated that our client has built an impressive record of publication i.e., the 6 published peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored book chapter. The willingness of these publications to feature work shows that they recognize its overall value to the field of chemical engineering. Not only did he successfully complete and publish the results of his research, but his work has also been cited a total of 50 times. Besides, he has already conducted 5 reviews, and these facts further demonstrate his elevated standing in the field.

Furthermore, we observed that his work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, which is an independent federal agency, which supports research with benefits for the U.S.’s economy, healthcare, and security, and this clearly demonstrates the significance of his contributions to nationally important objectives. Thus, we attached his credentials and an email correspondence confirming his future job opportunity interview. Once the package was ready, we sent it out to the USCIS marking his successes and achievements, proving that our client is an invaluable resource to the United States.

Positively, USCIS permitted our client to continue to advance his proposed research here in the United States as USCIS was convinced with the paperwork our team submitted establishing his research in this area holds numerous benefits for healthcare and other applications. Our team congratulates him for achieving the NIW approval, and we would also thank him for choosing our law firm (NAmILG) to represent his case. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
