Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your services. I really appreciate it.”

On February 18th, 2023, we received another I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for an Associate Research Physicist in the Field of Advanced Engineering Materials (Approval Notice).

General Field: Advanced Engineering Materials

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Research Physicist

Country of Origin: Pakistan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: February 18th, 2023

Processing Time: 15 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

We employed our team of experts to build a convincing case for a Pakistani client with a Ph.D. in physics to help him file the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. We included details from his professional and academic career in his petition packet to support his claim to the NIW category.

We showcased that his proposed endeavor is to continue his research on the electronic and topological properties and defects in novel materials, as well as the effect of quantum confinement in ultra-thin semi-metallic films of materials.

  • Furthermore, due to its evident national importance, the client’s research has been supported with funding from the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation. This funding is reserved solely for research directed at advancing the national interest, including research that contributes to the national health, welfare, and prosperity, as well as national security through solutions to energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges.

On the other hand, we highlighted that his academic performance has been responsible for several publications, and citations:

  • His research has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored),1 conference paper and 1 conference abstract.
  • He has completed at least 6 reviews to date.
  • His publications have been cited 123 times according to Google Scholar.

Not only this but the recommendations had an excellent review of his work, one (out of four) of which are quoted below:

“…[Client] has distinctly promoted and improved upon computational methods, thus, his work is intrinsically valuable for the interests of the United States and should be invited to continue his research here.”

As the documentary evidence and corroborating testimony from experts in the field establish, our client is a member of the professions holding an advanced degree. He proposes to continue his research on investigating the electronic and topological properties and defects in novel materials, as well as the effect of quantum confinement in ultra-thin semi-metallic films of materials, which is clearly an endeavor with substantial merit and national importance.

We are thus very proud that our client got his NIW approval in only 15 days. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
