Case Summary:

When a postdoctoral associate from Russia researching in the field of microbiology approached North America Immigration Law Group to put together a convincing EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we ensured to select all the noteworthy information to build a concrete case in his favor. Thus, we incorporated our client’s documentary evidence and corroborating testimony from experts in the field in his petition packet, establishing that he must continue his research on creating robust techniques for characterizing photosynthesis, water oxidation, and microbial production processes to support the development and improvement of green energy and greenhouse gas reduction technologies, which is undoubtedly an endeavor with substantial merit and national importance.

In tandem with his successes as a researcher, he has conceived an authorship record that is commensurate with his high level of expertise. He has thus far published 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) in no fewer than 2 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals.

His publications have accumulated a total of 28 citations; hence his research definitely has a wide-ranging impact on the studies of many other microbiologists. Besides, his current reputation in microbiology comes as no surprise considering his formidable background as a peer reviewer, he has completed at least 3 peer reviews to date.

Furthermore, having obtained an M.S. in microbiology and biotechnology, his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it directly aids solar energy in efficiently and effectively meeting the vast and increasing desire for solar power, and due to its national importance, his work has also been supported with funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the National Science Foundation, and the Swedish Research Council since it contributes in various ways to the American microbiology community.

In addition, we incorporated 4 testimonials acquired by our client from other experts in his field, who wrote to support our client’s work further which is relevant to ensuring the growth of the solar panel market through expanding energy production methods and safeguarding critical water resources against pollution. One of them stated the following:

“The findings of [client’s] work is critical to advancing research in the field, as his work has contributed to solar energy generation and its conversion and storage as chemical energy in the form of algae, photosynthetic prokaryotes, or plants. Moreover, it has provided insight that will prove useful for the development of self-healing solar fuel catalysts… He has promoted progress in this area, particularly in helping scientists implement more sustainable and environmentally neutral energy sources. His accomplishments are directly pertinent to the advancement of the renewable energy industry, and he is regarded as an authority in this discipline as a result.”

All the aforementioned details pragmatically put in our client’s petition packet acquired him the most awaited NIW case approval from the USCIS. We are glad that we were being able to support him fully, and that he retained our law firm for his I-485 application as well, and now we wish him well on this great breakthrough, also, congratulate him for his I-485 approval.
