Expert of Bioprocess & Molecular Engineering Research (BPMERU), Biotechnology Engineering Department, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). From 2010 to 2012, he was appointed a head of department Biochemistry & Processing at the Institute of Gum Arabic & Desertification Studies (IGADS), University of Kordofan, Sudan. In addition, a research assistant at the Department of Biochemistry & processing, at Institute of Gum Arabic & Desertification Studies (IGADS), University of Kordofan, Sudan. He has considerable experience teaching and mentoring students at the Western Kordofan University. He had the opportunity to teach Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Organic and Inorganic chemistry at the Faculty of Veterinary Science. As a graduate student, he was fortunate to teach Biochemistry, Food Analysis, and Advanced Analytical Chemistry and advanced Instruments at the department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology Engineering at the University of Kordofan, Sudan and International Islamic University Malaysia, Malaysia respectively. In 2020, he was conferred with PhD (Excellent) after three years at IIUM, Malaysia, in the scope of the Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of New inhibitors of Methanolic crude extract and it’s active fractions of Acacia complex groups of Gum Relevant to the Development Natural Anticancer Agents for Treatment of Human Breast carcinoma (MCF-7), colon adenocarcinoma (HCT-116), and Prostate cancer (PC3) Human cell lines properties of the extract using In-vitro methodology as well as anti-inflammatory (In-vivo) agents against Carrageenan induced Rat paw oedema. In 2008, he achieved his MSc (Excellent) in Analytical Chemistry, University of Khartoum, Sudan and was awarded the most prestigious honour (Best MSc Dissertation). In 2003, he graduated with BSc (1st class Hons) after five years in Biochemistry & Food Science, University of Kordofan, Sudan and was honoured with the best student Scholarship and prestigious prize for the best BSc Dissertation.

In 2019, he was recognised as one of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) Alumni for Science Development & Network. From 2017 to 2020, he has published 13 articles in indexed journals, 5 of them were added to the Malaysian national library (http://malrep.uum.edu.my/rep/Record/my.iium.irep.67133/Description), One (2) book chapter, 18 International conferences, Fifteen workshops (15), One (1) Silver Medal, One (1) International Research Awards 2020 for the excellent in Biotechnology biological applications in Anti-inflammatory agents, and One (1) patent under registration. He is also a reviewer in four (4) international Journals in UK and Malaysia. For farther research & publication see (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=undo98wAAAAJ&hl=en). During his PhD studies, he was involved with Phyto-chemistry team at Bioenvironmental Engineering Research Centre (BERC), Biotechnology Engineering Faculty of Engineering, IIUM Malaysia. He has led seminars and workshops in science, biotechnology and innovation; knowledge, technology transfer and commercialisation; research and development (R&D); strategic planning learned and utilised include; antiproliferative assays parallel extraction techniques, for both development of optimum extraction conditions and also multiple bioactive, and automated parallel purification techniques such as preparative column and solid-phase extraction processes, delivered of Malaysia and overseas programmes, etc. His exceptional professional experience includes extraction, determination and identification of phenolic compounds using liquid-solid phase extraction techniques, Antioxidant activity measured by deferent methods and techniques using DPPH, ABTS, FRAP, and CUPRAC methods using UV-Spectrophotometer Multiplate 96 well plate, Oil extraction using Soxhlet and cold press methods, Gum Arabic and other Natural Products Physicochemical aspects, analysis, and Bioactive and phenolic compounds, analysis by Spectrophotometer, GC-MS/MS, UHPLC, FTIR, and RAMAN. In addition, Ahmed possess other experiences including; main principles of scientific writing, writing articles (MS), writing funding proposals, writing theses, translating English abstract to Arabic language, analysing experimental data using design expert (DOE), Graph pad prism software, Origin lap pro software, Minitab software, Xlstata software, SPSS, AMOS and Sigma Plot software, Endnote and Mendeley. The academic year 2015-2016, Ahmed was appointed to lead the International Institute for Halal Research and Training (INHART), International Islamic University, Malaysia as Lab administrator. During 2009 to 2011, he was responsible for research projects in collaboration with local milk industry to examine applications of gum Arabic and camel milk as novel healthy food. The project was exploring the health benefit of this mixture to infant feeding, and the use as the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. He collaborated with Perfect Life Food Containing Homogenized Ingredients Manufacturing Company in Kuwait. The work involved antioxidant extraction derivatives that could be used to investigate the biosynthesis of the human cell wall with the aim of developing novel inhibitors for cancer. Several publications resulted from this work. He also participated in the studying of gum Arabic as prebiotic in collaboration with Darsavnna Gum Company, Khartoum. Currently, he is collaborating with the University of California, International Islamic University Malaysia & Qassim university to undertake worked at Nanosystems Institute international renowned research group in the field of organs on a chip model technology and cancer research as Postdoctoral fellowship applied to be sponsored by IsDB 2020/2021. He is also working on a research project in collaboration with El-Obeid Teaching Hospital on the use of gum Arabic (mechanical powder) for treating patients with severe constipation.
