General Field: Space Physics

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: February 11th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 26 days

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client is an expert in the field of space physics who has worked tirelessly to study phenomena like the magnetosphere, radiation belts, and geomagnetic storms, all of which have profound impacts on his research endeavors. To convince the USCIS of the national importance of his work, we adopted the line of argument that his research on data analysis and computer simulation of Earth’s radiation environment dynamics is of great importance because of the impact of space weather on many aspects of daily life. The technologies affected by space weather are increasingly central to the functioning of modern societies, and further research in this area allows for better protection of these systems.

Among other things, we listed the 29 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles, and 1 additional conference paper (11 of them first-authored) published by our client. We also listed the 389 times his work was cited by other researchers in the field. It is unquestionable that our client is highly regarded in his field. We also noted the 10 times our client judged the work of his peers in the field.

Our client’s NIW petition was further strengthened by 5 recommendation letters that were signed by other notable researchers and experts in the field. One of these recommenders stated: “This is particularly of great importance to NASA’s Moon to Mars mission because exposure to electromagnetic storms and high energy radiation is one of the greatest threats to astronauts. [Client’s] ongoing research is thus important to any nation seriously engaged in space exploration and research.”

We congratulate our client on his NIW case approval and we thank him for also choosing North America Immigration Law Group ( to represent his EB1A case. We wish him the best as he continues to work in the United States with his impactful research.
