Case Summary:

Just 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for an assistant professor from China, the USCIS approved his case. Not only did our client have a doctoral degree and ample experience working in the field of mechanical engineering, he also had the full support of his employer who served as the case’s petitioner.

Building a strong EB-1B petition:

Once we were retained, our team initiated a deep and comprehensive research on our client’s background in order to devise a strong petition.

We learned that his specialized research has focused on the creation of new frameworks and algorithms to study large-scale combustion systems, including computationally efficient simulation of turbulent combustion, the creation of a self-consistent framework for multiscale modeling of plasma assisted ignition and combustion, the creation of a new real fluid property evaluation tool for supercritical mixing and combustion, and the design of a well-balanced numerical scheme for shallow water systems, which could greatly impacted the US defense industry through his findings on non-equilibrium plasma, simulations of turbulent combustion, and high-thrust rocket engines. Aside from detailed summaries of our client’s research projects, we also discussed the 356 times his 26 peer-reviewed scientific articles were cited as well as the 30 times he judged the work of his peers.

We also assisted our client to narrow down the list of potential recommenders who could advocate for the approval of his EB-1B petition. The six recommenders our client approached were all prominent members of the mechanical engineering research community, and they gladly supported in the form of recommendation letters. According to one of the recommenders: “[Client] is a truly exceptional researcher. Both his publication and citation records reveal him to be one of the top minds currently working in his field. His continued research on mechanical and aerospace engineering represents a substantial opportunity to the United States, and scientific and technical progress will suffer if his talents are squandered”.

After months of working closely with our client with utmost perseverance, we successfully demonstrated that our client had satisfied the EB-1B criteria. We thank him for choosing us to represent his I-140 EB-1B case and wish him the best in his future career.
