Filiberto Bilotti received the Laurea and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from ROMA TRE University, Rome, Italy, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. Since 2002, he has been with the Faculty of Engineering (2002-2012) and, then, with the Department of Engineering (2013-now), at ROMA TRE University, where he serves as a Full Professor of Electromagnetic Field Theory (2014-now) and the Director of the Antennas and Metamaterials Research Laboratory (2012-present).

His main research contributions are in the analysis and design of microwave antennas and arrays, analytical modelling of artificial electromagnetic materials, metamaterials, and metasurfaces, including their applications at both microwave and optical frequencies.

In the last ten years, Filiberto Bilotti's main research interests have been focused on the analysis and design of cloaking metasurfaces for antenna systems, on the modelling and applications of (space and) time-varying metasurfaces, on the topological-based design of antennas supporting structured field, on the modelling, design, and implementation of non-linear and reconfigurable metasurfaces, on the concept of meta-gratings and related applications in optics and at microwaves, on the modelling and applications of optical metasurfaces.

The research activities developed has resulted in more than 500 papers in international journals, conference proceedings, book chapters, and 3 patents.

Prof. Bilotti has been serving the scientific community, by playing leading roles in the management of scientific societies, in the editorial board of international journals, and in the organization of conferences and courses.

In particular, he was a founding member of the Virtual Institute for Artificial Electromagnetic Materials and Metamaterials – METAMORPHOSE VI in 2007. He was elected as a member of the Board of Directors of the same society for two terms (2007-2013) and as the President for two terms (2013-2019). Currently, he serves the METAMORPHOSE VI as the Vice President and the Executive Director (2019-now).

Filiberto Bilotti served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (2013-2017) and the journal Metamaterials (2007-2013) and as a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal on RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering (2009-2015), Nature Scientific Reports (2013-2016), and EPJ Applied Metamaterials (2013-now). He was also the Guest Editor of 5 special issues in international journals.

He hosted in 2007 the inaugural edition of the International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials in Microwaves and Optics – Metamaterials Congress, served as the Chair of the Steering Committee of the same conference for 8 editions (2008-2014, 2019), and was elected as the General Chair of the Metamaterials Congress for the period 2015-2018. Filiberto Bilotti was also the General Chair of the Second International Workshop on Metamaterials-by-Design Theory, Methods, and Applications to Communications and Sensing (2016) and has been serving as the chair or a member of the technical program, steering, and organizing committee of the main national and international conferences in the field of applied electromagnetics.

Prof. Bilotti was the recipient of a number of awards and recognitions, including the elevation to the IEEE Fellow grade for contributions to metamaterials for electromagnetic and antenna applications (2017), outstanding Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (2016), NATO SET Panel Excellence Award (2016), Finmeccanica Group Innovation Prize (2014), Finmeccanica Corporate Innovation Prize (2014), IET Best Poster Paper Award (Metamaterials 2013 and Metamaterials 2011), Raj Mittra Travel Grant Senior Researcher Award (2007).
