General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: Iran

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Hong Kong

Approval Notice Date: April 23rd, 2022

Processing Time: 2 months, 7 days

Case Summary:

Our firm has established itself as a leading name in the field of legal immigration services. We have helped over 25,000 clients get approval for various petitions. This in turn has led to an accumulation of information on the adjudication process. This information becomes needful when dealing with clients who need our help for applications under various immigrant or non-immigrant visa categories.

Thus, when we got an expert in the field of mechanical engineering from Iran who wanted to file his EB2 I-140 NIW (National interest Waiver) petition, we made sure to help him take the best and fastest route forward. This meant going through his professional documents and academic paper to collect valuable data for his petition. We found the following information for his application:

  • His proposed endeavor is to continue developing state-of-the-art and novel technologies targeting improvements in the realm of renewable energy utilization and efficiency in order to minimize the use of fossil fuels, thereby providing clean, cheap energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it directly supports the increasingly important applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to the world’s most advanced problems, such as “materials discovery or high-energy physics, where the answers are unknown beforehand or the results of an automated system are not easily verified,” according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States because moving away from traditional energy sources such as petroleum in favor of renewable energy sources is the only way to meet the greenhouse gas pollution reduction goals co-signed by the federal government in the Paris Agreement, can be fulfilled.
  • On the other hand, he has completed at least 175 reviews to date for well-known scientific journals of repute.
  • His research work has resulted in 52 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter.
  • These publications have been cited an immense total of 1,674 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of mechanical engineering.
  • Furthermore, his study has received funding from the Qatar National Research Fund’s National Priorities Research Program and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing novel technologies targeting improvements in the realm of renewable energy in order to minimize the use of fossil fuels for 8 years.

All of these pieces of evidence helped to quicken our client’s adjudication and got him his NIW approval only 2 months and 7 days later. We are proud of having worked with him and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
