“Thank you so much! You service is really good.”
On April 5th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Battery Simulation Engineer in the Field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).
General Field: Mechanical Engineering
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Battery Research Engineer
Country of Origin: China
Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Michigan
Approval Notice Date: April 5th, 2017
Processing Time: 8 days (Premium Processing Requested)
Nebraska Service Center (NSC) approved the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition of a Michigan-based battery research engineer in a short span of 8 days. This quick adjudication period was possible on account of Premium Processing. Premium Processing is an option offered by the USCIS for petitioners who want to speed up adjudication of their petitions. As a result, a petition that would normally take 4-9 months to be processed would be done within 15 days from the date of filing.
Before we started work on the case, we conducted a quick evaluation of our client’s credentials in order to verify his chances of EB-1A approval. We confirmed that he had secured a doctoral degree in the field of mechanical engineering and had extensive research experience in the same field. We also determined that our client was an expert on modeling, validation, and analysis of mechanical stress generation in lithium ion batteries. Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s findings progress other researchers’ understanding of next-generation battery performance as it applies to electronic devices and Hybrid Electric Vehicles, particularly in the electronics and automotive industries of the United States.
We also took note of our client’s citation and publication record. At the time of filing, our client’s publications consisted of 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 3 peer-reviewed conference papers, and they had secured 112 citations. Moreover, our client had been invited by several high-impact journals to review the work of his peers in the same field. In total, our client had already conducted 40 reviews when we filed his case. This was proof of his important standing amongst other scientists specializing in mechanical engineering.
To validate the extent of international influence his work had garnered, our client procured 5 letters of recommendation from other top-level experts. A well-known mechanical engineering consultant affiliated with a multinational corporation stated: “Although small lithium-ion batteries are standard in handheld devices, larger versions have grown in demand as electric and hybrid electric vehicles become more viable and cost-effective. It is immensely important to the national interest that the United States steward the worldwide development of this technology. For this reason, I want to strongly emphasize the national importance of [Client’s] research.” These letters, which were incorporated into our client’s EB1A petition dossier, amply endorsed our client’s credentials.
As a result of our meticulous efforts coupled with our client’s strong research background, our client is now one step closer to his green card. We join him as he celebrates his EB1A success and we wish him the very best as he continues to progress the field of mechanical engineering.
