Case Summary:

Our team at North America Immigration Law Group had the pleasure of working with a research scientist from India. At the time our client approached us for filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf, we made sure of all the necessary documents, to begin with preparing a solid case for her. Before proceeding, we reviewed her academic and professional achievements thoroughly as our priority was to emphasize her accomplishments to the adjudicating authorities and to certify that she deserved the national interest waiver approval. We included the following details in her NIW petition packet:

Research Description:

Our client’s research work focused on developing and running modeling frameworks using numerical weather and climate models and data analyses to understand and mitigate the effects of extreme weather and climate events on complex urban infrastructures. Our client’s incredible findings made it effortless to convince the USCIS that her research is of great importance because it helps the field project when and where extreme weather is set to occur, how extreme weather is set to be, and what type of preparations are necessary to cope with extreme weather.

Our client’s exceptional publications acquired 290 citations, thereby expressing a great impact of the research work on her peers. Her publications included 13 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 2 technical reports, and 1 encyclopedia article. In further evidence of her distinguished expertise in the field, we also noted that she had reviewed her peer’s work 30 times for highly acclaimed journals.

Recommendation Letters:

In addition, to authenticate our client’s petition, we asked her to collect a few letters of recommendation from other renowned experts in the field, and she also managed to supply us with five such recommendation letters which became imperative for us to add to the presentation. An assistant professor described our client’s research as:

“[Client] is one such researcher who is making significant strides in this field. She has researched climate and energy, such as how climate change is affecting the infrastructure of the United States…. It is safe to say that, through her impactful research on hydroclimate response and the country’s infrastructure, she has significantly advanced her field as well as the interests of the United States.”

Victorious Result:

With our experience in obtaining over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we were victoriously able to secure another NIW approval for our client. Undoubtedly, our client’s dedication to her work proves her to be a valuable asset to the United States. We thank our client for working with us and congratulate her on this breakthrough.
