Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you again for your help with my I-140 petition.”

On February 14th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Agricultural Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Agricultural Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Missouri

Approval Notice Date: February 14th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 29 days

Case Summary:

With a success record of over 16,000 approved I-140 cases, our team knew what type of legal strategy to take after evaluating our client’s extensive credentials. In preparing our client’s NIW Petition, we took into consideration USCIS adjudication trends at the time as well as our client’s background and myriads of achievements in the field of agricultural engineering. Specifically, his research focuses on the characterization of the sources and pathways of pollutants in watersheds. Our Client’s research in his area is of great importance because it works to protect the safety of wetlands. Wetlands are essential for the success of numerous environments, as they improve water quality for major water sources, reduce the impacts of floods, and protect shores from wave action. His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the field because it reduces the impact of nutrient pollution in watersheds.

At the time of filing, he has published 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and has collectively been cited 24 times. He has also assessed the work of his peers 7 times. Additionally, the 5 recommenders our client contacted have provided testimonials to demonstrate his respected status in the field. According to one of the recommenders: “When considering the ecological importance of wetlands and the rate at which they are disappearing, it becomes all the more apparent that there is a dire need for practical and effective means of protecting these ecosystems. [Client’s] work provides exactly that, and his findings have certainly not gone unnoticed by his peers.”

We are delighted that our efforts led to his NIW approval. We thank him for choosing us to represent his NIW petition and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of agricultural engineering in the United States.
