Success Stories: Thanks to NAILG, NIW Approval Obtained for a Vietnamese Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theoretical Physics without RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much indeed for all of your support. I really appreciate your amazing work in my case!”

On January 10th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Field of Theoretical Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Theoretical Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Country of Origin: Vietnam

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Nevada

Approval Notice Date: January 10th, 2023

Processing Time: 6 months, 19 days

Case Summary:

The following information was collected by our team for an NIW (National Interest Waiver) case for a Vietnamese postdoctoral research fellow in theoretical physics:

  • As an expert in the field, his proposed endeavor was to continue his analysis of the theoretical and computational aspects of nuclear, atomic, molecular, and optical physics to develop new methods that increase our capabilities to manipulate quantum systems, elucidating the nature of dark matter and expanding our understanding of the Universe.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it expands the field’s understanding of dark matter. While the field of theoretical physics has recognized the importance of dark matter, still little is understood about what dark matter actually is.
  • His research in high-precision detection of new physics (including dark matter) using quantum effects is vital to developing new theoretical approaches that allow the field to make progress in answering these fundamental questions concerning the nature of the Universe.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States as the federal government has prioritized this goal, as reflected in the funding practices of government departments and major funding agencies.
  • His expertise in dark matter and his research on the topic ensures that the United States does not lag behind other countries when it comes to dark matter research and instead secures the nation’s position as a global leader.
  • Due to the national importance of his research, it has been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
  • On the academic front, his research has resulted in 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 73 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Additionally, his 5 years of work in the field have been recognized by at least 4 letters of recommendation from experts who knew his work and appreciated its value. One such expert said:

“The current Standard Model of physics cannot account for these unknown phenomena, making the development of new physical theories necessary. Considering that [the client’s] research concerns this matter, it is essential to drive technological innovation in this area. Historically, paradigmatic shifts in physics have widespread and lasting effects on Earth, as evidenced by the second industrial revolution being powered by Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism. The ability to explain dark matter is a spark that furthers our understanding of the quantum and cosmic realms, putting us on the dawning of another great technological revolution, making [the client’s] studies of paramount importance.”

Hence, when his case approval came through, our team was very happy to have worked with him on the case. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
