Since 2002, he has been with the Department of Engineering, "Roma Tre" University, where he works as a Full Professor of electromagnetic field theory.

His main research interests are in microwave and optical applications of artificial electromagnetic materials, metamaterials and metasurfaces. He is the author of more than 370 papers in international journals, conference proceedings, and book chapters. From 2004 to 2008, he has been a member of the governing bodies of METAMORPHOSE, the European Network of Excellence on Metamaterials. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the European Doctoral School on Metamaterials and the organizer of several international school events and international workshops and conferences in the field of metamaterials. He has been the local organizer of the First International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials and Metamaterials in Microwaves and Optics-Metamaterials 2007 (Rome, Italy, October 2007), served as the Chairman of the Steering Committee and has been elected General Chair of the same conference for the period 2008-2014 and 2015-2018, respectively.

Prof. Bilotti served also as a member of the Technical Program, Steering, and Organizing Committee of several national and international conferences, as organizer and chairman of special sessions focused on the applications of metamaterials at microwave and optical frequencies, as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (2013-present) and Metamaterials Journal (2007-2013), as a member of the Editorial Board of the journals EPJ Applied Metamaterials (2013-present) International Journal on RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering (2009-present), Scientific Reports - Nature (2013-present), and as a Technical Reviewer of the major international journals related to electromagnetic field theory and metamaterials. Filiberto Bilotti was an elected member of the Board of Directors (2007–2013) and currently is the President (2013–2016) of the Virtual Institute for Artificial Electromagnetic Materials and Metamaterials (METAMORPHOSE VI, the International Metamaterials Society). He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Member of the Optical Society of America. Dr. Bilotti has been the recipient of the Raj Mittra Travel Grant Senior Researcher Award in 2007 and of the Finmeccanica Corporate Innovation Award in 2014.
