Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “… a remarkably influential figure in her field.” Furthermore, “She is certainly an unparalleled researcher who would be extremely difficult, if not altogether impossible, to replace.”

These words of support were taken from recommendation letters contributed by other prominent chemical engineers. These letters were signed in support of our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition and they promoted the significance of our client’s research in addressing some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding new methods for conserving energy based on Cu2O thin films and inorganic phase change materials.

What else did the EB1A petition contain?

Alongside these letters of recommendation were details related to our client’s Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and her various research projects. We also highlighted the 330 citations collected from her 8 publications, and the 18 times she judged the work of her peers. These numbers persuaded the USCIS that our client is an extraordinary researcher at the top of her field with sustained international influence.

Pursuing the final step:

There are 2 steps in the green card process: filing an I-140 petition and an I-485 application. Now that our client has an approved I-140 EB1A, all that stands between her and permanent residency is the I-485 application. We wish her the best with this and thank her for choosing us to represent her EB1A case.
