Case Summary:

An associate physicist based in New York hired our firm, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG), to help him with an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case. After confirming that he was a good fit for this I-140 category, we started work on his petition which contained the following information:

  • Educational background

Our client holds a doctoral degree in physics obtained from a leading university in his birth country of India. Upon completion of the degree, he continued his outstanding research at an institute in Europe, where he continued to progress the field of physics as a whole.

  • Research projects

Our client has been heavily involved in several studies that deal in fundamental facets of processes ubiquitous to everyday life, from the function and structure of proteins to how confinement affects liquids. These studies have resulted in a better understanding of how protein crystallization occurs for drug development purposes, and how proteins react to different environmental conditions in a manner that drives human diseases.

  • Publication record

As a result of his research, he has published 23 peer-reviewed scientific articles and conference papers, all of which were cited 367 times by researchers from all around the world.

  • Review work

When we filed our client’s EB1A case, he had already performed 4 peer reviews for esteemed journals, which proved his important standing in the field of physics.

In support of our client’s petition, several well-known physicists contributed recommendation letters that detailed the significance of his studies to the United States. As one professor highlighted in his recommendation letter, our client is “one of only a few specialists in the world studying the physics of proteins and developing data acquisition methods.”

We are pleased that the USCIS agreed that our client is an extraordinary researcher, and thanks to Premium Processing, approval was granted in just 8 days. As the final step in the green card process, NAILG has filed I-485 applications on behalf of our client and his dependents—approval of their applications will confirm their status as American permanent residents. We thank our client for working with us and wish him the best as he continues advancing the field of physics.
