Case Summary:

Our client, a civil engineering expert who aims to further his research on creating robust and efficient renewable energy sources and structures. This will help safeguard communities from the growing frequency of natural calamities, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, strong winds, high waves, etc., that are caused by climate change. Additionally, this initiative will also help in lowering carbon emissions. He is a holder of a Ph.D. in civil engineering and has built an impressive record of success in the field of civil engineering.

With all his merits and research endeavor, he approached our firm “North America Immigration Law Group” to help him file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition and prove that his research is relevant to mitigating economic and social losses by creating structures that are environmentally sustainable and withstand exposure to weather-related disasters, as well as tailoring infrastructure to the specific environmental disasters experienced by different regions. Thus, we were compelled to proceed with his case and submit a strong petition on his behalf due to his remarkable research experience and excellent credentials.

In his petition letter, we included the following attributes:

  • We noted that his specialized research also has broad implications for the United States since his research regarding durable structures is integral in managing the national economic costs of disaster relief and meeting regional environmental safety needs.
  • Given its national importance, he received funding support as well from the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF). This funding supports projects that advance technologies that improve national prosperity and well-being. Therefore, his research clearly is important for improving the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of public infrastructure projects.
  • Moreover, his research has resulted in 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 2 technical reports. These works have accumulated a total of 70 citations from other experts in the field of dynamical systems.
  • In addition, he is frequently invited to conduct peer reviews for respected journals and conferences in his field due to his expertise in analyzing structures and evaluating them under natural hazards. He has completed 3 reviews so far for notable publications. Being asked to review the work of colleagues in such esteemed venues is a clear indicator of his knowledge and expertise in his area of research.

Included with this petition are letters from other professionals who are experts in the field, providing additional insight into his work. Although these specific research contributions represent only a portion of his successful research, they demonstrate his particular expertise and ability to continue making significant contributions to his field and to advancing the proposed endeavor. Therefore, as demonstrated above, the importance of the client’s research is evident.

After diligently laying out a robust NIW petition packet on our client’s behalf, we added one more success story to our success track record of more than 32K approved cases. We are glad that our client achieved his NIW approval in just 18 days with the help of a premium processing service. We truly appreciate our client for trusting our law firm and giving us an opportunity to be a part of this spectacular story.
