Success Stories: An Indian Postdoctoral Fellow in Advanced Engineering Materials Wins NIW Approval Thanks to NAILG’s Case Preparation Assistance


Client’s Testimonial:

“I am delighted with how you handled my EB2-NIW I-140 case. Thank you.”

On March 6th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Advanced Engineering Materials (Approval Notice).

General Field: Advanced Engineering Materials

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Georgia

Approval Notice Date: March 6th, 2023

Processing Time: 2 months, 23 days

Case Summary:

“[The client’s] work offers massive overhauls to both the organic material manufacturing sector and the sector of consultant businesses for the manufacturing industry. As such, [the client’s] work is a boon to American industries whilst also providing environmentally favorable materials. The discovery of new materials is crucial to the advancement of any nation, and [the client] is indispensable to the United States in this regard.”

As the above statement from another expert in the field proves, our National Interest Waiver client is a talented researcher whose work in advanced engineering materials is highly valuable to the U.S. As such, while preparing his application, we used the following facts collected from his documents to argue in favor of his NIW approval:

  • His proposed endeavor is to continue his research on developing state-of-the-art active learning platforms for the autonomous designing of organic materials with targeted performance, including large databases of computed polymer properties and corresponding machine learning models.
  • This research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it advances the use of organic polymeric materials daily. Organic polymers are important in living things as they provide basic structural materials for vital life processes.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since organic photovoltaic solar cells are based on organic polymeric materials which have major benefits for the United States.
  • Due to this, his research has also been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation and the Toyota Research Institute.
  • Additionally, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals in the field where he has completed at least 15 reviews to date.
  • His research has resulted in 13 peer-reviewed journal articles (10 of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 388 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of advanced engineering materials.
  • We also found that he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing state-of-the-art active learning platforms for the autonomous designing of organic materials with targeted performance for 10 years.

All of these factors have given him a strong foundation in the field of advanced engineering materials, which is necessary if he wants to continue working in the area. These factors helped him a great deal in winning the approval without an RFE.

We are proud to say that we assisted him in this process and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
