Professor Radmilovic obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Metallurgy from University of Belgrade in 1985. In 1986 he joined the Department of materials science, University of California at Berkeley, as a postdoctoral research associate before taking faculty position at University of Belgrade in 1987. In 1987, he was invited to be a visiting assistant professor at University of California, Berkeley where he taught courses on transmission electron microscopy and microanalysis. In 1992 he was a visiting professor at the Department for Materials Science and Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From 2000 to 2010 he was a staff scientist and principal investigator at the National Center for Electron Microscopy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a member of the team in charge of the development and implementation of the next generation of transmission electron aberration-corrected microscopes (TEAM Project). In 2011, he returned to the University of Belgrade. His research interest focuses on solid state phase transformations and interfaces, structure-property relationships in engineering materials, application of high resolution electron microscopy and spectroscopy, supported by computer modeling and simulation, in study of nanomaterials, including nanowires, thin films for MEMS and NEMS, graphene and carbon nanotube based nanocomposites and devices, thermoelectrics, catalysts, solar cells, etc. He has more than 400 publications in refereed journals and proceedings of international conferences, over 100 invited talks and has organized numerous symposia, workshops and international meetings. His work has been cited more than 10000 times with an H index of 49. Professor Radmilović is a recepient of many awards including: Fulbright Scholar, Outstanding performance award from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley, the Belgrade City Award for Natural and Technical Sciences, The European Microscopy Society Outstanding Paper Award, the Outstanding scientist award given by the Ministry of Science and Education of Government of Serbia, Honorary Member of Academy of Engineering Sciences of Serbia, and Corresponding member of Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
