Case Summary:

Our client from China was an expert in mechanical engineering and was employed as a lead applications engineer when he came to us in November of 2021 seeking help with his O1-A (Outstanding Researcher and Professor) petition. He had made substantial contributions to the field and his specialized research had focused on mechanical design, material analysis, and joining optimization. It was evident that his study addressed some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to develop and implement advanced manufacturing strategies and the use of hydrogen fuel cells in automotive vehicles. This is what made the application process much easier for our team to deal with. The USCIS demands that any O1-A applicant prove that their work is outstanding through national and international recognition and accreditation. This was made possible by our team which collected all relevant data from his CVs, transcripts, certificates, etc.

While putting together his petition packet our team made sure to include the following:

  • A detailed explanation of his research work in the past and for the future.
  • Documentation of his research in the past proving his international renown included:

His record of authorship in his field of endeavor shows that his work has resulted in 23 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 5 patents.

This work has been cited 261 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar.

He has conducted at least 20 reviews which further demonstrates his important standing in the field.

Evidence of his major funding sources namely the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the North American Die Casting Association (NADCA).

  • On the other hand, he also had 4 letters of support to his name.

All of these pieces of evidence put together made for a very impressive petition packet that received approval in just 14 days. We are grateful for our client’s continuing trust in our firm and for retaining us to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petitions.
