Success Stories: Indian Postdoctoral Fellow in Geosciences Gets NIW Approval with Help from Our Team of Experts


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for the approval notice.”

On November 8th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Geosciences (Approval Notice).

General Field: Geosciences

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: India

Approval Notice Date: November 8th, 2021

Processing Time: 10 months, 21 days

Case Summary:

As an expert in the field of geosciences, our client from India has the proposed endeavor to continue his geosciences-based and related engineering investigations to solve problems related to the effect of natural fractures in hydraulic fracturing and explore the underlying mechanisms for optimal recovery of hydrocarbons in order to meet growing energy demands. Given that energy production is a top priority for every country, his work is of clear interest to the world. It was apparent to us that in order to continue to hold a dominant position in the area of natural gas production, the United States must support the work of researchers like him who focus on solving problems related to the effect of natural fractures in hydraulic fracturing and subsequent production in unconventional reservoirs.

This is why our team did not meet any difficulties while compiling and filing his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case which meant that they collected data such as:

  • His publication record stands at 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) and 2 conference papers (1 first-authored).
  • His citation record which was a solid 115 at the time of filing.
  • His review count stood at 15 when he came to file his petition.
  • His letters of recommendation which he obtained from 4 separate sources on our advice. One of these was from a source who knew him personally as well as academically, while the others were all taken from independent sources who decided in favor of his work entirely based on objective evidence of his research.

So when the decision was handed down to us by the adjudicating authorities at the USCIS, we were both glad and thankful for our client’s trust in our firm and our methods. We are delighted to add his NIW case approval to our list of countless clients whose cases have been approved with our expert help and support.
