Prior to taking on the role at SafeGround, Kimberley’s work at SafeGround was focused on communications, assisting with funding proposals and contributing to field and desk research. She is co-editor of the research publication In Search of Safe Ground: Explosive Remnants of World War II in the Solomon Islands.
Kimberley is currently consulting for Handicap International Cambodia on a campaign to encourage the government of Cambodia to accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions. She frequently works on short-term projects with the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority, and consults for other local and international NGOs.
