That's a tough one. I'm not a big fan of NIWs anymore. I'd need to review your entire background but my gut is to go the EB1A route after your 5 peer-reviewed publications. I assume that there must be some connection between your EE work/background and your career in education. Is it STEM education?

It is STEM Education. I'm form India, which makes an EB2 route exceptionally long. Good to hear that EB1A is a possibility. Regarding the publications, do I need to wait for them to garner citations? or am I good to go as soon as I have them published?

Citations are helpful - more in support of the original contribution criterion - but not required.
