By the time we filed his petition, we had built a customized case that contained documentary evidence including the 65 times his 8 peer-reviewed journal articles and 2 conference papers were cited, the 4 peer reviews he conducted, and the significance of his work which would directly improves technologies for the U.S. manufacturing sector, as well as the automotive, aerospace, and appliance industries.

According to one of the recommenders: “[Client] works in a vital area of the applied sciences.
