Client’s Testimonial:

““Thank you for your support in my EB-2 NIW I-140 application process!”

On March 17th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Staff Engineer in the Field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Staff Engineer

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 17th, 2023

Processing Time: 23 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

When our EB2-NIW (National Interest Waiver) client from India wanted to file his petition, we took care to include the following in his petition:

  • As an expert in mechanical engineering, his proposed endeavor is to create mathematical models and perform simulations to optimize the mechanical design of hard disk drive (HDD) devices that employ next-generation technologies such as heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) and dual actuator technology. This would help to power the world’s cloud storage centers and enable research in data-intensive applications like artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and genome sequencing.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it utilizes advanced numerical simulations to improve the designs of HDD data storage devices, allowing them the greater capacity, better performance, and improved affordability.
  • This research also has broad implications for the United States since many applications that benefit the American people rely on vast amounts of data. For example, genome sequencing, which, among other healthcare functions, facilitates determining polygenic risk scores, necessitates storing massive amounts of data. Genomic sequencing is only one of the many beneficial applications requiring improved data storage systems, and our client’s work is also crucial to autonomous vehicle design, machine learning, artificial intelligence training, and a range of other pursuits that benefit global leadership, economic development, and public health of the United States.
  • Additionally, due to its clear national importance, his research has been supported with funding from the Advanced Storage Research Consortium.
  • Not only this, but he has also completed at least 50 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable venues like these, it is clear that he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.
  • His research has resulted in 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them first-authored), 3 peer-reviewed conference papers (2 of them first-authored), and 3 published patents and these publications have been cited a total of 72 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Moreover, he has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor for 9 years and he has obtained 2 letters of recognition from other experts.

All of these facts made for an impressive petition and won him the NIW approval in just 23 days. This was also possible due to the new premium processing upgrade for EB2-NIW cases. We are happy to have represented him, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.
