General Field: Materials Chemistry

Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval was granted to an associate scientist based in Michigan. Before beginning with an attorney-client relationship, the North American Immigration Law Group (NAILG) assessed her provided testimonies to determine NIW success. We affirmed that we could help her obtain the national interest waiver after a complete background verification. Our team gathered the relevant information about her academic and professional attainments, and we chose to highlight the following details in the presentation:

  • Publication Record, Peer-review Experience and Citation Count: We noted the 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (two of them first-authored) she published that amassed 59 citations. This indicated the significance and impact of her studies in the field of materials chemistry.
  • Research Description: We outlined our client’s research which focused on developing and optimizing bioanalytical methods for the quantification and separation of different types of biological matrices with biomedical and industrial applications. Our aim was to determine that her research in this area is of great importance because it helps elucidate the properties and characteristics of different components of biological matrices such as metal oxide nanoparticles.
  • Recommendation Letters: Furthermore, we included recommendation letters signed by leading experts in the field. Our client managed to provide us with 5 recommendation letters accumulated from her peers. The following statement is excerpted from one of these letters:

“Carbon dioxide is the primary driver of global warming, which is already thought to be influencing weather patterns in the United States and elsewhere in the world. [Client] has arrived at important conclusions on matters of significance to the United States’ environmental, economic, and societal sectors.”

Successful Result: We proved to the USCIS that our client should be allowed to continue her research in the U.S. and they eventually approved her NIW petition. The team at North America Immigration Law Group would like to thank our client for working with us and we congratulate her on this milestone.
