Mohamed Badawy obtained a B.S. degree in 1993 an M.S. degree in 1997 in pesticide chemistry and toxicology and a Ph.D. degree in pesticide chemistry and toxicology with the title “Chemical structure and acaricidal activity relationship of some sulfonate and sulfonamide compounds.” He served as a Demonstrator from 1993 to 1997, Assistant Lecturer from 1998 to 2001, and a Lecturer from 2002 to 2008 in the Department of Pesticide Chemistry and Toxicology, Faculty of Agriculture, Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt. He was also a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Crop Protection Chemistry, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Ghent University, Gent, Belgium, from September 2002 to May 2005 in the area of chemical modification with fungicidal and insecticidal activity of a natural polymer chitosan. He also worked as an Associate Professor from 2008 to March 2013, and now he is a Professor at the Department of Pesticide Chemistry and Technology, Faculty of Agriculture, Alexandria University. He received academic awards including Prof. Dr. Nabila Bakry Prize for Honor Scientific in Pesticide Chemistry Sciences (1993); First Class Honor Prize in Pesticide Chemistry, Faculty of Agriculture, Alexandria University (1993); Alexandria University Prize for Science Encouragement in Agricultural Sciences (2009); and Egyptian State Prize for Science Encouragement in Agricultural Sciences, 2010. His research area and experience include synthesis and chemical structure activity relationship of new bioactive compounds including a natural polymer chitosan and its derivatives, development of purification techniques for synthesized compounds, spectroscopic characterization of synthesized compounds by FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy, measurement of antimicrobial activity of synthesized compounds, and chromatographic analysis using GC and HPLC for pesticide residues analysis.
