Dr Michael Norman is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of the Western Cape. His key research area is the software industry in developing countries and as such his PhD in Computer Science from the University of the Western Cape focused on the software development successes in a developing country such as India with the intention of determining what other developing countries could learn from this. A study of software development in the Western Cape region (Cape Town) has also been undertaken to determine the status thereof. Dr Norman recently started co-supervising projects in Cyber-security in collaboration with the CSIR as a mechanism to start to establish this within the department and primarily teaches software engineering at both undergraduate as well as graduate levels.
