Research Scholar

Novel Data Ecosystems for Sustainability Research Group

Advancing Systems Analysis Program


Milutin Milenković is a research scholar in the Novel Data Ecosystems for Sustainability Research Group of the IIASA Advancing Systems Analysis Program. His current research focuses on combining Earth observation and citizen science for monitoring environmental change, particularly tropical forest growth and resilience. He is also an associated researcher in the Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing lab at Wageningen University, The Netherlands.

Milenković holds a PhD (with distinction) in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing from Vienna University of Technology, Austria, and a Dipl.-Ing. degree in Geodesy from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. He completed his postdoctoral research at Wageningen University working on big Earth observation data for monitoring Amazon rainforest disturbance and recovery. His PhD research focused on mapping different physical characteristics of natural surfaces, such as surface roughness and vegetation transmittance, and 3D tree modeling using laser scanning and photogrammetry.
