Roman's blog

Hi there! 👋

My name is Roman. In my professional life, I’m an engineering manager at Google, working on Android Security. My sphere of interests is in an interesting overlap between security and user experience - after all, the most secure phone is the one turned off, with no SIM card, in a block of concrete at the bottom of a river - but it doesn’t mean it’s easy (or at all possible!) to use.

In my personal life I’m a proud dad, an obsessive reader (sci-fi all the way!), amateur photographer, more-than-average guitar player and a software/hardware tinkerer.

In this blog I will be talking about both work and personal projects, as well as anything I feel like mentioning.

If you would like to reach out, please send an email to roman[at]
