Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for the wonderful news.”

On December 22nd, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Fellow in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Fellow

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: December 22nd, 2023

Processing Time: 4 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our client, a specialist in the field of electrical engineering, wants to pursue her goal of developing conceptual models that offer quantitative neurobiological and neurobehavioral criteria for improving clinical diagnoses and treatments for mental and psychiatric illnesses.

The research she is doing to support her proposed endeavor is very important since it will greatly impact public health and the world economy. Therefore, our team at the North American Immigration Law Group agreed to take her case and countersigned the client-attorney agreement for an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition.

We noted that our client, holding a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, had published 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored), 8 conference publications (5 of them first-authored), and 1 preprint in no fewer than 6 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, altogether accumulating 89 citations. Upon reviewing her citation record, it is evident that she has greatly influenced other researchers’ comprehension of neural activity in concussion patients, connection patterns, cortical activation, and social cognition. Thus, her research has directly benefited other people in the field of electrical engineering.

Moreover, her study has been funded by the New Jersey Commission on Brain Injury Research, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Science and Technology Program of Guangzhou Province, thereby affirming that her research supports a broader understanding of biological processes for improving disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

We are pleased to state that our team successfully persuaded USCIS that the work of our client holds significant value for the U.S. economy and public health. There is a particularly urgent national need for her continuing contributions considering that over one in five U.S. adults were living with a mental illness in 2021. Without her expertise in quantitative neurobiological and neurobehavioral criteria, the U.S.’s efforts to mitigate the impacts of mental health disorders are hindered. Having said that, it is an incredible accomplishment that our client was able to achieve her NIW approval in just 4 days after we submitted her petition to the USCIS. We are appreciative that she chose our law firm for her I-140 application, and we also congratulate her on her notable accomplishment and successful completion of this process.
