Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in engineering science and extensive research experience, undoubtedly, our client possesses the ability to advance in the field of water resource engineering. When he contacted our law firm to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, we delved more into his degrees and diplomas. After thoroughly evaluating his credentials, we established that we would lead him to NIW success and countersigned the retainer agreement.

Our objective was to prove that he is a keystone researcher in his field of endeavor, therefore we added essential attributes to his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition packet.

  • We noted that his work has been cited 335 times by dependent and independent researchers.
  • We also detailed his contributions to peer-reviewed journal articles which resulted in 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (three of them first-authored) and 8 conference papers (three of them first-authored).
  • He has completed at least 20 reviews to date.
  • His research has in fact been supported with funding from NASA.

Our client’s research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it addresses key issues such as those related to climate change. Climate change threatens human health and safety, including safe drinking water and a healthy food supply. Among other applications, his research is relevant to mitigating the effects of climate change on water resources.

  • As an expert in the field of water resources engineering, our client’s proposed endeavor is to continue his research on developing and utilizing state-of-the-art tools and techniques in the field of water resources engineering to assess water resources and minimize the threat of water resource disasters such as floods and droughts in addition to analyzing and minimizing the impacts of climate variability and change on the water resources.

We are pleased that our efforts and hard work, in this case, paid off well in proving that our client’s major contributions to the field of water resource engineering make him an unparalleled asset to the United States, thus he received his NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval.

Therefore, we thank him for choosing the North America Immigration Law Group to represent his NIW case and wish him very well as he continues to advance in his proposed field.
