Dr Milojevic is an environmental epidemiologist with background of GIS and spatial analysis. She completed PhD on geo-spatial methods for assessing environmental impact on health in Japan (Keio University, Tokyo). She received academic and field research training of epidemiology in Japan (Keio University School of Medicine) and in the UK (LSHTM) as a Post-Doc research fellow funded by Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Since joining LSHTM as a Lecturer in 2009, she has been involved in varieties of epidemiological researches to quantify the impacts of air pollution, weather, greenspace, noise and flooding as well as to evaluate various public health policies through empirical study designs and health impact assessment.
Dr Milojevic is module organiser of Environmental Epidemiology for the MSc Public Health (London-based) course. She provides tutoring for MSc in Public Health students and supervises Research Degree students.
Dr Milojevic’s research builds on geo-spatial approaches to model health impact of environmental change. She has a broad range of research interests covering substantive analyses on air pollution, weather (including heat, cold, humidity, heavy rainfall and flooding) and urban housing environment (indoor temperature, dampness/mould) as well as methodological issues on geo-spatial linkage, overlaying multiple layers (vs. collinearity) and spatial non-stationarity of the fitted model.
She had been involved in EuroHEAT (coordinated by WHO Regional Office for Europe and co-funded by EC DG SANCO), LUCID (The Development of a Local Urban Climate Model and its Application to the Intelligent Design of Cities, funded by ESPRC), AWESOME (Air pollution and weather-related health impacts: methodological study based on spatio-temporally disaggregated multi-pollutant models, funded by NERC), and the
Home Energy Efficiency Interventions and Winter Deaths (funded by NIHR PHR), ADRC-E (Administrative Data Research Centre for England, funded by ESRC).
She serves as a member of the Japan MOE Committee of Health Impact of PM2.5 (Analysis methods group) and the Japan MOE Committee of Health Risk Analysis of Photochemical Oxidant.
