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 and received academic and research training of epidemiology at Keio University School of Medicine in Japan and at LSHTM in UK as a Post-Doc research fellow funded by Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Since she joined LSHTM as a staff in 2009, she has been involved in varieties of epidemiological researches on air pollution, temperature and flooding.

Dr Milojevic is module organiser of Environmental Epidemiology (PHM205) for the MSc Public Health by Distant Learning course and also responsible for lecture and practical sessions on GIS in Environmental Epidemiology module for the MSc Public Health in-house (London-based) course.  She is a tutor for the in-house MSc in Public Health 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, 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). She is currently research associate responsible for geographical methods theme in ADRC-E (Administrative Data Research Centre for England, funded by ESRC). She is also a member of the Analysis Committee of Health Impact of PM2.5 appointed by Ministry of Environment in Japan.
