Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks for your help on this case.”

On March 10th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Industrial Ecology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Industrial Ecology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: North Carolina

Approval Notice Date: March 10th, 2022

Processing Time: 2 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

One of the most certain ways to determine the value of a researcher’s work in the national and international arena is to take a look at the funds that they have received for their research from leading institutions. It shows that these institutions place their trust in the researcher and their abilities assuring us of the quality of their work as well. So when a postdoctoral associate from China came to us with a history of funding from multiple sources such as the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the National Science Foundation, etc., our team could quickly grasp the value of his work for the world. This helped our team prepare a solid case for him which included details of the funding information along with the following:

  • Details of his work show that he is an expert in the field of industrial ecology and that he wants to continue his research by developing analytical tools and modeling systems of national agriculture and timber production in order to implement strategies that reduce national emissions rates, including biofuels and sustainability systems that accurately account for economic factors affecting these industries.
  • Explanation of how his work is nationally important shows that it holds many implications for the world’s largest industry, agriculture.
  • Evidence shows that he has completed at least 17 reviews to date for several magazines of repute.
  • His research has also resulted in 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (8 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter.
  • These publications have been cited a total of 67 times according to Google Scholar.
  • We also showed that he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor that reduces national emissions rates for 4 years.
  • And finally, his work has been appreciated by other experts in the field as well through 4 recommendation letters issued for him. One of these said the following:

“[The client] has been key to improving the networks of communication that allow for changes to be made in American agriculture systems. Seeing as his goal in this work is to protect the nation’s environmental condition and lower the impact of greenhouse gas emissions, this is vital to the United States. [The client], in his project, has described a process by which these farmers are educated on the environmental impact of certain agricultural practices, and he promotes the spread of information to support uniform, effective change. Wide implementation of this strategy allows American farmers to improve their environmental impact while also increasing profit margins, as these same knowledge networks communicate the best crop yield practices.”

Thus, when his case was approved by the adjudication committee in a short period of 2 months and 22 days only, our team rejoiced in his success. We are glad we could be of assistance to him in this process and we wish him the very best in life.
