Success Stories: An Indian Postdoctoral Research Associate Researching the Field of Physics Gets EB1-A as well as NIW Approved with our Team’s Sustained Encouragement


Client’s Testimonial:

“I am very happy with the group. I literally followed what the attorneys suggested. My research is in one of the most specialized fields however I had to make very little to almost no changes in the final petition draft. I was surprised to find how well the group had drafted the technical parts/importance of my research. In short, I blindly trusted the group, followed every suggestion, provided relevant documents: got approved in 3 days with premium processing. If I have to do the process all over again (lets say hypothetically), I would only consider NAILG.”

On September 30th, 2021 and March 22nd, 2022, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Tennessee

Approval Notice Date: September 30th, 2021 (EB-1A) and March 22nd, 2022 (NIW)

Processing Time: 1 month (EB-1A) (Premium Processing Requested) and 12 months, 25 days (NIW)

Case Summary:

“In focusing on classical and quantum theories of gravity, [client’s] research focuses on understanding the origins and development of the universe. Simultaneously, these insights are critical to the theoretical development of quantum computation, which rely upon superposition and entanglement to provide faster processing and can perform tasks that classical computers are unable to complete. [client’s] research is thus of great import for the United States.”

“These findings have introduced unique methods for measuring neutron star properties which has immense importance in the strong-field tests of general relativity in the context of gravitational waves. As such, [client’s] research is vital for current and future physics investigations in the United States.”

These are the two passages extracted out of the four letters of support furnished by our client that he was able to obtain from experts in his field of physics.

  • Our client hails from India and holds a Ph.D. degree in physics.
  • Employed as a postdoctoral research associate, he has built a daunting reputation over years.

So when he approached us to help him with his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approvals, we moved ahead to countersign the retainer agreement after the initial step of the background check was completed.

The second step was to lead experts to accumulate together a strong case in his favor. So, we researched through his academic and professional details along with his proposed endeavor.

  • His strong background in quantum gravity, theoretical physics, astrophysics, mathematical modeling, data analysis, and computational programming has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming quantum gravity, quantum cosmology, and gravitational waves research, and well as improving the use of advanced physics techniques to examine complex, interdisciplinary questions.
  • He has made original contributions of major significance to the field of physics, including but not limited to significantly expanding the fundamental knowledge of quantum gravity, the generalized uncertainty principle, and gravitational waves.
  • His quantum gravity, quantum cosmology, and gravitational wave research address some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including achieving an enhanced understanding of the beginnings of the universe.

Furthermore, he has completed:

  • At least 17 reviews to date for at least 4 journals which are highly discerning journals with very stringent publishing guidelines that enlist the services of only the most accomplished researchers.
  • Served as a guest editor for 1 journal.
  • His research has resulted in 25 peer-reviewed scientific articles and alongside which these publications have been cited a total of 735 times in at least 51 countries according to Google Scholar.
  • At the same time, our client’s study has also been covered by major media, namely Scientific American (among the leading popular science sources in the world), highlighting his research on a proposed model of quantum gravity and a critical step towards understanding quantum gravity, and indirectly, the origins of the universe.

As public interest in this topic is especially high, the coverage of his work indicates both the exceptional quality of his research as well as the importance of his work in addressing scientific challenges of immense interest.

All of the above-mentioned information was enough to convince the adjudicating authorities of the value that our client added to the United States soil, leading his case to a certain victory. He not only received his EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) in only 30 days (thanks to premium processing) but even received his NIW approval in the next few months. We are pleased to have had the opportunity to represent him in this case. We wish him good luck in his future endeavors.
