Case Summary:

A senior research engineer, highly proficient in the field of polymer science, contacted North America Immigration Law Group to help him by filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. We appraised his qualification and professional background along with his intended research work. Armed with a Ph.D. in polymer engineering and his profound experience in the field undoubtedly proves him to be a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. Thus, we commenced documenting his case and included the following information in his petition packet:

1. We elaborated his research focusing on engineering aerogels with diverse geometries and forms to improve their function for various applications. Therefore, we were certain of its great importance as the aerogels produced through his work augment critical applications such as drug delivery and filtration, which is relevant to improving industrial applications based on aerogel technology, national energy security, and chemical manufacturing.

2. We observed that he has established an impressive record of publication, the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored), and these have been published in the topmost journals altogether gathering 305 citations, which determines that these publications are most-cited and widely recognized in the field of polymer science.

3. The urgent need for his research continuation in the U.S. is also corroborated by his peers and government interest in his work as he is an active member of the scientific community and conducted 9 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals. Moreover, his investigations have been supported by funding grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund. Respectively, these funding organizations seek to ensure national security and economic competitiveness through scientific innovation, verifying the significance and national importance of our client’s research projects.

4. Furthermore, we incorporated four recommendation letters obtained by our client from fellow experts in the field to fortify that his work is indeed invaluable to health outcomes in the medical industry and beyond. One of the recommenders worded:

“[Client’s] research contributes to the United States’ chemical industry, one of the largest manufacturing industries worldwide… His research is therefore marked by unparalleled value for the United States. Due to the groundbreaking research strides, he has made and continues to accomplish, it befits the U.S. to allow him to carry on his pioneering work uninterrupted.”

The USCIS spent 7 months adjudicating his work. As we have extensive knowledge in devising the employment-based visa, we were sure of the petition approval. Successfully, USCIS approved his NIW petition, and we would sincerely like to thank our client for choosing us for representing his I-140 application. Also, we wish him well for furthering in his desired field.
