Case Summary:

A senior research engineer holding a Ph.D. in materials science from Italy/Argentina hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to furnish an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. While preparing our client’s petition log, we thoroughly reviewed his extensive experience in the field of materials science and research work on developing and leveraging novel processing techniques and alternate synthesis methods like reactive melt infiltration to produce high-temperature materials for applications like aerospace & defense, and energy production.

The research seemed to be having great importance because it leads to the production of new materials that facilitate more advanced and effective technologies in a range of important industries. Chief among these is the energy sector, particularly as some of his past work and his current research direction have focused on improving materials for concentrated solar power plants. These facts establish his work is beneficial to the United States, and he must be allowed to advance his proposed endeavor.

To fortify his case to the USCIS, we incorporated the below-mentioned attributes:

Publication Record, Peer-review Experience and Citation Count:
Our client’s successful research works have influenced several of his peers. We noted the accumulation of 162 citations from 11 peer-reviewed journal articles (8 of them first-authored), four book chapters, and 1 U.S. patent application he published. Also, we discerned that our client is an active member of the scientific community as a peer reviewer and conducted 10 reviews, signifying his important standing in the field of materials science.

Recommendation Letters:
Moreover, we asked our client to provide us a few recommendation letters to strengthen his case. As per our advice, he managed to provide us four recommendation letters that he obtained from his peers and other experts working in the same field. We added the same in his built case. According to one of his recommenders:

“As another example of the national importance of [client’s] efforts and the role of his research in attaining this goal, his work on more cost-effective heat exchangers received funding from the United States Department of Energy. This financial support highlights the critical role that his work plays in the energy sector in the United States.”

Successful Result:
Conclusively, the USCIS was convinced that our client is an asset to the United States and permitted him his NIW approval. The team at North America Immigration Law Group would like to thank and congratulate our client for trusting and associating with us.
