General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Case Summary:

A Turkish expert in mechanical engineering approached North America Immigration for his National Interest Waiver (NIW) application. So our team ensured that his petition contained all of the following information to prove his significance for the U.S.:

  • He intends to continue pursuing his proposed endeavor by developing noninvasive medical diagnostic methods for identifying the mechanical properties of the human liver, to be used as biomarkers in the diagnosis of liver fibrosis.
  • This research to advance his proposed endeavor was of great importance because it extends his expertise in using advanced MRI techniques to acquire the mechanical properties of soft tissues in a noninvasive manner in vivo to gain insight into disorders of the liver.

This is why one of his recommendations said:

“[The client’s] efforts have revealed novel data with regards to aging adults, who are at greater risk of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s. His project on pediatric and adult brains also delivered a baseline for pediatric, adolescent, and elderly brain viscoelasticity, improving viscoelasticity-based metrics for a broad range of individuals. Through his efforts, [the client] has progressed the field’s understanding of critical subjects such as the mechanical properties of the brain while also addressing severe threats to public health.”

  • His research also has broad implications for the United States, since his proposed endeavor seeks to apply this advanced technology to disorders of the liver, a particularly alarming public health concern in the United States.
  • It was due to its clear national importance that his research has been supported by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • He has also completed at least 4 reviews to date and published 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (three of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 124 times, according to Google Scholar.

Over a period of 5 years, our client’s research in the field led to a deep understanding of the area giving him the necessary footing to continue the research in the future. Once these facts were presented to the adjudication committee, his case approval was certain. So when he got the approval after only 7 months, we were proud and happy to have worked with him. Our firm wishes him all the best for the future.
