Client’s Testimonial:

“A friend of mine recommended me and I would like to recommend Chen Immigration to all my friends in need. They reply email fast and provide a lot of professional suggestions. Thank for very much for helping me get approval.”

On January 10th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: January 10th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering and many years of experience progressing in the same field, our client had suitable credentials to file her I-140 petition under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). Our attorneys and support staff worked diligently to compile as much relevant information as we could to build a strong case for our client.

What did her winning NIW petition contain?

We noted her 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (three of them first-authored) and 3 peer-reviewed conference articles which gathered 36 citations. We also documented the 3 times she judged the work of her peers. Furthermore, we incorporated 5 recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field. According to one of these experts: “Although she focused her efforts principally on designing transparent ceramics with nonlinear optical applications, her research has far-reaching applications beyond the world of ceramics and has supported investigations in other related scientific areas. [Client] is an irreplaceable figure within the broad field of materials science, and should absolutely be retained within the United States research community.”

Details regarding our client’s investigations also played a major role in the approval of her EB-2 NIW petition. Thanks to the comprehensive research summary she provided, we have in-depth understanding of her research on fabricating and characterizing optical ceramics useful in nonlinear optics. Her research in this area is of great importance because it advances a key area of research that is indispensable to the global economy and research communities.

Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. Our client received her approval notification in less than 6 months after filing. We congratulate her on this milestone, and wish her the best as she continues to advance the field of materials science.
