Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the pleasure of working with was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant from China in the field of Astrophysics. His specialized research has focused on analyzing and processing astronomical data pertaining to Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs), which are intense bursts of gamma-rays in deep space and, to this day, remain the brightest, most energetic electromagnetic events known to occur regularly in the universe. His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the physical principles governing GRB duration, afterglow potency, jet propulsion, and other important properties. His work had resulted in 43 peer-reviewed scientific articles, dozens of bulletin papers and proceedings, and numerous presentations at national and international conferences. At the time that his case was filed, his publications had been cited at least 2,068 times by researchers around the world, serving as apparent and objective evidence of his major influence and impact on the field of endeavor, in addition to his sustained international acclaim. He had also conducted 9 manuscript reviews for 2 distinctive, internationally circulated journals. His superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, Modern cellular communication would be impossible without a thorough understanding of space science, for instance, and most experts agree that developing physical and theoretical understandings of Gamma -ray Bursts is the most important issue in Astronomy and Astrophysics research. It is imperative that [client] is able to continue his research on the analysis of SWIFT, Fermi, and Chandra data for this reason. Considering that he has years of experience developing novel processing software for all of these data -based GRB explorer missions, he is indeed the ideal candidate for any research position in astrophysics, and he will continue to help scientists understand the evolution of the Universe.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of Astrophysics, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in just 4 days.
