F. Ahmedbeyli was born on February 12, 1923 in Baku, an intelligent family. He participated in the Second World War in 1941-1945. In 1950 he graduated from Geological-Explorative faculty of Azerbaijan Industrial Institute (now Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University).

F.Ahmedbeyli deserved PhD in Geology-Mineralogy in 1954, Doctor of Geological-mineralogical Sciences in 1964, and the professor in 1972. In 2001 he was elected as a corresponding member of ANAS.

F. Ahmedbeyli began his career at the Institute of Geology of ANAS and worked as a senior laboratory assistant, science researcher, and head of the division. Since 2011, he has been working as the senior scientific researcher at the Geotechnical and Regional Geology Department of the institute.

F.Ahmedbeyli is a well-known scientist in the field of geology, geotechnics and neotectonics. In Azerbaijan, complex scientific research on neotectonics is related to his name. He studied large structural elements of Azerbaijan, problems of modern tectonic processes and neo-neutectonic interaction with oil-gas and seismicity. The main direction of his scientific activity is the development of geo-tectonic structure and geodynamic evolution of the Earth's crust's surface and depth, and the identification of correlative dependencies between modern tectono-geodynamic, seismic and exogenous processes. New geological, tectonic and neotectonic maps of the Republic of Azerbaijan were developed with his participation, "Geological Encyclopedia of the Republic of Azerbaijan", as well as various geological maps were also issued.

F.Ahmedbeyli is the author of 145 scientific works, including 12 maps and atlas, 5 monographs. He has made numerous presentations at international conferences, symposiums and congresses. She has been a participant of international (STCU, SCOPES, CNRS) grant projects.

Under the guidance of F.Ahmedbeyli 2 doctors of sciences and 6 PhDs were trained. He was a member of the Dissertation Council at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of ANAS.
