General Field: Materials Science

Case Summary:

This is North America Immigration Law Group’s custom to seek out and put together a convincing petition letter for our clients after having done their thorough background check. This helps us select all the important information to build a solid case in our client’s favor.

When an academic research fellow in the field of materials science approached us to file his I-140 (National Interest Waiver) petition, we made sure to include his publication count and citation records along with the recent funding that he might have received in his petition letter.

We thus found that his research has resulted in:

  • 89 peer-funded journal articles (29 first-authored and 1 equal contribution with the first author) and 1 textbook chapter.
  • His publications have been cited a total of 3,643 times according to Google Scholar.
  • He has completed at least 218 peer reviews to date.
  • His study has received funding from the National Research Foundation of Korea.

Furthermore, having obtained a PhD. in Nanotechnology, his proposed endeavor of synthesizing novel nanofibers to improve the effectiveness of wastewater treatment, energy storage, and antibacterial biomedicine directly addresses critical issues related to antibacterial biomedicine, renewable energy, and the removal of organic and inorganic pollutants from wastewater.

  • His research also has great substantial merit and national importance since among other applications, his work is relevant to antibacterial biomedicine, renewable energy, and the removal of organic and inorganic pollutants from wastewater.

Moreover, here is one quoted passage, taken from testimonials of experts in his field, written expressly to state their support for our client:

“[Client’s] production of multiple, effective antibacterial nanofibers provides material for fabricating devices like wound dressings in biomedical settings, preventing the spread of antibiotic-resistant infections and helping to lower their negative impacts on the nation. It is for this reason that his research clearly aligns with national health priorities.”

These facts accompanied by the excellent case preparation strategy employed by our experts, helped him obtain his NIW (National Interest Waiver) application approval despite waiting for a long period. His Immigrant Visa Process (IVP) is also active with us.

We are grateful to him for his continued trust in us. We wish him the very best in his life.
