Case Summary:

“It is well-known throughout the scientific community that soot particles pose a great threat to the environment and human health. Evidence has proven that the emission of soot particles, primarily caused by diesel engines, has directly contributed to rising temperatures, melting ice, and climate change as a whole. One of the researchers leading the way in this area of study is [the client], who has bolstered the field’s understanding of soot oxidation, its kinetics, and its relationship to nitric oxide. Due to the progress, he has achieved in his research, [the client] has placed himself at the top of the field of mechanical engineering.”

“American-made diesel engines, specifically those that are considered heavy-duty and clean, are contributing nearly $3.4 trillion to economic activity in the United States each year. By contributing to research aimed at improving the efficiency of heavy-duty clean diesel engines, [client] is supplementing studies that are central to the United States economy on both national and state levels.”

“This research is vital for improving the efficiency of gas turbine systems, which are widely utilized by the private and public sectors of the United States. With widespread applications to promote national, economic, and energy security, the production of efficient gas turbine systems must be a primary goal of the United States government. With his research regarding varying conditions that affect the efficiency of gas turbine systems, [the client]is definitely an asset to the United States and its many public and private industries.”

These are a few passages taken from testimonials of experts in the field of Mechanical Engineering, written expressly to state their support for a client who came to us in October of 2019. The client hailed from Taiwan and had been working as a mechanical engineer for several years.

As is our custom at North America Immigration Law Group, we sought to put together a convincing petition letter after having done a thorough background check. This helped us select all relevant information to build a solid case in his favor. This meant including his publication count and citation records along with any recent funding that he might have received.

We thus found that his research has resulted in 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (one first-authored). And these publications have been cited a total of 55 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of mechanical engineering. His research had also received funding from Solar Turbines and Siemens.

We are hence delighted to have been of help to him in this process and we wholeheartedly wish him the very best in all of his future endeavors.
