    Case Summary:

    North America Immigration Law Group – represented a postdoctoral research associate in the field of Mechanical Engineering. This client’s work had focused on developing tools and models in order to optimize fuel cells and other green energy devices. The client also worked with solid oxide fuel cell technology (SOFC), proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMDC), and compact heat exchange reformer modules (CHER). More recently, the client explored the possibility of hybrid air foil bearings. At the time his EB-2 NIW petition was submitted, the client had co-authored 2 journal articles and first-authored 2 additional articles. These four articles had been cited 23 times when this case was filed. Additionally, an independent recommender confirmed: “The US is in great need of additional energy researchers and could particularly benefit from the continuance of [Client’s] work. At present, the US imports about 8.5 million barrels of crude oil every day at astronomical cost. [Client’s] research enables further exploration into alternate methods of energy production that is not only more environmentally sustainable, but can use domestic fuels such as natural gas, thereby reducing the cost of energy production while simultaneously lowering American dependence upon foreign economies. Without [Client’s] innovation in SOFC systems, such a dream would still be far beyond the realm of possibility, and it is reasonable to extrapolate that cessation of his research would be highly damaging to continued progress in these areas.” This EB-2 NIW petition received approval 5 months, 1 day after the case was filed.
