General Field: Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Outside the US

Approval Notice Date: February 7th, 2017

Processing Time: 12 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and extensive experience progressing the field of physics, an assistant professor based in China seemed like a suitable candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), the USCIS only spent 12 days adjudicating our client’s case before approving it. Armed with an approved EB1A, our client can now undergo immigrant visa processing (IVP). IVP is the second and final step in the green card process for applicants residing outside the US (for those in the country, they will file an I-485 application).

What did the EB1A petition contain?

In preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we made sure to include plenty of information on his array of achievements as a physics researcher. After reviewing his research summary, we concluded that his work on the application of biomechanics and statistical physics to the analysis of biological phenomena addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to achieve more efficient drug delivery and biosensor development as well as how to minimize the health hazards of nanotechnology.

Besides summarizing our client’s work, we also noted other snippets of information such as the 817 citations gathered from his 10 publications and the 20 times he reviewed the work of his peers. We also incorporated five recommendation letters into the EB1A packet. These letters were signed by other influential members of the physics research community, one of whom stated, in part, that “… it is certainly in the nation’s best interest to allow [Client’s] research to continue in the United States.” Another expert noted that “[Client’s] theoretical framework and models are particularly significant for the United States, which has a large and complex economy.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval, and we wish him the best with IVP.
