He was active with mosque youth groups during his teen years. He attended Faculty of Science, Cairo University and graduated Bachelor degree with a major in Chemistry in 2000, and Master degree with a major in Analytical Chemistry in 2004. His Master thesis was on the protonation and complexation equilibria studies of hydroxamates bioligands. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2009 from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan in Applied Chemistry. Fazary's work there involved production, purification, and characterization studies of feruloyl esterases. His doctoral dissertation (under the direction of Yi-Hsu Ju) was on the Feruloyl Esterases. As part of this work, he discovered an interest in ferulate research. The newly-minted Dr. Fazary pursued a new research area focused in bioactive natural products from endemic plants and marine resources at National Taiwan University at Taiwan where he did a two year postdoctoral fellowship with Ya-Ching Shen. In 2011, Ahmed accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Inorganic Biochemistry at King Khalid University, Abha, Saudi Arabia. Besides his research and activities in Universities, in 2001, Fazary received tenure as Chemist at Egyptian Organization for Biological Products and Vaccines, and was promoted to Research Assistant Chemist in 2005 and Researcher Chemist in 2010. His current work applied chemistry research fields such as bioinorganic chemistry, protein chemistry, and natural product chemistry. Till now, Fazary has more than 37 SCI publications, two books, and supervises 5 undergraduate, 4 Master and 3 PhD students. He was also a principal investigator for 3 research projects, and co-investigator for 7 research projects. Fazary was Editorial Board Member and Technical Editor in some SCI journals. Fazary has been active member in the American Chemical Society as well, especially with the Inorganic Chemistry Division. Also, he is a member in Egyptian Syndicate of Scientific Professions since 2001 to date.
