Case Summary:

An assistant research scientist from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. With a doctoral degree and extensive experience conducting materials science fieldwork, he checked all the boxes required to qualify for EB1A. Out of the 10 criteria set by the USCIS, these are the 3 we focused on:

  1. Authorship of scholarly articles in the field, in professional journals, or other major media (national newspapers, magazines, etc.): We demonstrated to the USCIS that our client’s research has led to the publication of 15 peer-reviewed scientific articles – an exemplary record compared to that of his peers in the mutual field of research.
  2. The foreign person’s participation, on a panel or individually, as a judge of the work of others in the same or a related field: At the time of filing, our client had already served as a peer reviewer 11 times for highly acclaimed journals. We informed the USCIS that this active review activity showcased his important standing in the field of materials science.
  3. Evidence of original contributions, usually through publication, of major significance in the foreign national’s fields of science, scholastic, artistic, or athletic: We detailed the 271 times our client’s work was cited by other researchers. This proved just how important his research is to others who are also progressing the field.

Besides the information above, we also detailed our client’s work on the application of cutting-edge electron microscopy and atom probe tomography to characterize the properties and behaviors of advanced materials. Further, we used this information to prove to the USCIS that his findings are applied in digital storage devices, magnetic data transfer, wind power generators and electric vehicle traction motors. Several experts in our client’s field of materials science lent support to his case in the form of recommendation letters. This is what one of them said: “I support the continuation of [Client’s] studies in the United States, as he has proven himself to be an indisputable leader in the field today.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval in merely 11 days, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his petition.
