Millions of landmines have outlived the conflicts in which they were embedded. Now rats and dogs are being used in Cambodia and elsewhere to sniff them out.

She has worked in publishing, as Managing Editor, Land Based Weapon Systems, at Jane’s Information Group, as a strategy consultant, and as a lecturer at The London School of Economics.
