Hi Biniam,

If you can show that the research you do has a substantial intrinsic merit and national interest (see the first link below) and you can attribute the small number of citations to the smallness of the community or other reasons, then you may have a chance of preparing a successful EB2-NIW case. Ideally, it would be better to collect more citations before applying (see stats by the second link below).

Hi Yao,

It depends on the type of research you do and your ability to show that it has an intrinsic merit (please see details by the link below). If you complete your PhD, that should not be a problem and you can also consider a possibility to apply for EB1A.
