Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved for Postdoctoral Research Scientist from Turkey in the Field of Atmospheric Physics

Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for your service.”

On September 27th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Field of Atmospheric Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Atmospheric Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Country of Origin: Turkey

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: September 27th, 2017

Processing Time: 10 months, 18 days

Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “a researcher in atmospheric physics whose diverse talents and encyclopedic grasp of science set her apart from her peers.” This statement was made by a prominent associate professor whose recommendation letter played an important role in securing our client the national interest waiver. This professor was not alone in his show of support and was joined by four of his peers, all of whom contributed recommendation letters of their own. We have no doubt that these letters paved the way for case approval, and we are pleased that our client persuaded these influential physicists to support her EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition.

Besides these letters of recommendation, our client’s comprehensive NIW petition packet was composed of information related to her work on theory and modeling of atmospheric sprites. We made sure that our client’s petition packet proved that her research results directly contribute to the improvement of air travel and communications technologies that are affected by specific electrical phenomena. Additionally, we convinced the USCIS that her work improves the United States’ understanding of electrical discharges.

To further strengthen our client’s NIW petition, we used Google Scholar to confirm her citation count. At the time of filing, her 3 publications had already gathered 70 citations, which proved that her work is important to other researchers in the field of atmospheric physics.

Although our client waited a little longer than expected for notification of case approval (10.5 months), we are pleased that she has overcome this significant hurdle in the green card process. We congratulate her on this win and wish her the best as she waits for the USCIS to take action on her I-485 application. Once approved, she will become a US permanent resident.
