Our Work

Our work cuts across a wide range of areas, from agriculture and climate to education and software development. We are passionate about projects related to development, education and the mathematical sciences, and particularly work that impacts more than one of these areas. 

The majority of our projects are in Africa and we have experience working in both Anglophone and Francophone areas. We have a strong commitment to building capacity locally wherever we work by involving and supporting local partners whenever we can.

Software Development

R-Instat is a front end to the popular statistics language R, conceived for and developed primarily in Africa.


With our partner, Statistics for Sustainable Development (Stats4SD), IDEMS supports the delivery of workshops organised by EUMETSAT on ‘The use of gridded satellite data for climatic services’.


IDEMS has and is working with Maseno University, Kenya, to supplement or replace Continuous Assessment Tests of students through regular Electronic Assessment quizzes with intelligent automatic feedback, and is investigating expanding to other African universities.
