Success Stories: A Scientist in Materials Science with Over 2,600 Citations and 96 Reviews Gets NIW Confirmation with Our Help


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much.”

On October 3rd, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Scientist in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Approval Notice Date: October 3rd, 2022

Processing Time: 7 months, 23 days

Case Summary:

An expert in the field of materials science, with a proposed endeavor to continue his research on the development of renewable, smart, and sustainable polymeric materials and composites with improved functionality to improve energy, additive manufacturing, and environmental applications came to us for his National Interest Waiver (NIW) petition filing. He needed our help with the preparation and submission of his application to the USCIS.

So, our team, having finished the formalities of documentation, began working on his petition by collecting data relevant to proving his worth for the country. They ended up collecting the following data:

  • The client’s work to advance his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it creates novel, important uses for cheap materials that exist in abundance globally.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States, since much of his work is focused on the use of low-cost, renewable byproduct materials to develop high-demand products, while reducing overall waste. His research is also important for supporting the country’s growing reliance on solar power. By using sustainable polymers to further develop solar cells, he is continuing to reduce their cost, therefore making solar technology more available for a wider segment of the American population.
  • He has also been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field, including international journals of repute. He has hence completed an amazing 96 reviews to date.
  • His research work has resulted in 42 peer-reviewed journal articles (18 of them first-authored), 1 peer-reviewed conference paper, and 4 published patents.
  • These publications have been cited a massive total of 2,600 times, according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of materials science.
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing sustainable polymeric materials and composites for energy, additive manufacturing, and environmental applications for 8 years giving him a lot of necessary experience for his work in the field.
  • Additionally, he had collected 4 letters of recommendation as supporting documents for his application. Some of these letters contained the following passages:

“[The client] is contributing to the national interest by developing organic solar cells. Organic solar cells use organic electronics and carbon-based materials as semiconductors that produce electricity from the sun. The United States also has one of the highest rates of greenhouse gas emissions per person. Solar power enables the United States to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas. Fossil fuels are the primary cause of air pollution, which causes disease and premature death, and climate change. Fossil fuels are a finite resource that is almost depleted, as well. [The client’s] insightful research provides much-needed solutions to these problems. His presence in the nation is necessary to ensure that progress continues at its current pace.”

“[The client’s] processing methods are vital for ensuring that the United States develops new and useful polymeric materials from the surplus. Polymeric materials are used in everyday life in items that include plastic bags, paint, glue, fiberglass, batteries, and many more. [The client’s] insightful research provides new uses for elemental sulfur and reduces waste. As a result, he improves the lives of millions of Americans, and his continued work in the nation contributes to new knowledge in the field.”

As is clear from these passages, the client’s work is of evident importance for the country and will continue to be so in the foreseeable future. We are proud to have represented him and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
