Hi Arima,

The number of citations you currently have might be a challenge in preparing a successful EB1A case. Usually, we would recommend to explain it by small size of the field you are in or to compensate it by the high quality of recommendation letters. However, recently it has become very difficult to do this, since, it seems, the USCIS started paying more attention to the citations. In addition, from the information you provided, it is not clear if you can satisfy 3 out of 10 criteria (see the link below). There are many nuances, such as if you are the first author in those papers and where they were published. It is also important for the awards to play a role to make sure that the nominees were chosen from a national/international pool of researchers that are among the top specialists in their field.

Additionally, there is currently a retrogression in the priority dates for Indian nationals, please monitor the situation and plan accordingly.
