I am sreekumar working as a Research Associate in the Doheny Eye Institute, University of Southern California and currently I am in H1-B visa status. I would like apply for Green Card. Basically I did my Ph.D in Zoology from India and joined in Doheny Eye Institute 2004. Currently I am working in a different field from my Ph.D work. SO far I published two first author papers, 1 coauthor paper in peer reviewed journals. Also I presented three abstracts in International seminars and coauthors of 6 abstracts. My question is what category should I fall if I applied for green card. Am I eligible under the outstanding professors and research categories.
