Case Summary:

A highly talented doctoral candidate from Iran engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to build and file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case on his behalf. After the careful evaluation of his academic profile, we concluded that we could build a strong NIW case for him and proceeded to counter-sign the retainer agreement. Our client’s petition dossier contained the following key points:

  1. We began with noting down the details of his doctoral research in electrical engineering. As a research assistant at an esteemed university in the US, he has performed control and optimization research in energy storage systems. We used this information to prove to the USCIS that our client has the training and knowledge needed to carry out impactful research that benefits the United States as it directly contributes to renewable energy development within the country, as well as the management of large-scale power systems.
  2. We paid close attention to his publication record—comprising of 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 7 conference articles —and the total number of citations amassed from them: 69 at the time of filing.
  3. We also noted the 16 peer reviews he had conducted for leading journals in the field through which he furthered his contributions to the realm of science.
  4. To support our client’s research in the country, several of his peers contributed recommendation letters. According to one of them, an assistant professor, “[Client]’s status as a major innovator and a top scholar in the field of electrical engineering makes him a vital asset for the advancement of the academic community and the future of power systems and energy management in the United States… it is necessary that [he] continue his work in the U.S., lest the American academic community fall behind in the areas of energy production and management.”

Overall our client waited 5 months and 18 days for the USCIS to take action on his case. We congratulate him for securing the national interest waiver, and we wish him the best with his continued research
