Our team

Dr. Adrian Trifu

Adrian is co-founder and managing partner of intooitus. He graduated as a computer and software engineer and earned a doctorate in software engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Before intooitus, Adrian worked as a researcher and consultant in the area of software design and quality assurance in the software engineering group of the FZI Research Center for Information Technology in Karlsruhe. In that capacity, he led or participated in several national and international research and industry oriented projects, in cooperation with partners such as Nokia, Philips, F-Secure, DaimlerChrysler, Kuka, Cenit and ABB. Apart from doing consultancy and occasional development work, Adrian is also responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company. In his spare time, he enjoys gazing at the stars through a telescope and studying the wonderful art of astrophotography.

Dr. Mircea Trifu

Mircea is co-founder of intooitus and fills the role of technical lead. He is an expert in the areas of software architecture design and quality assurance. He graduated from the Technical University of Timisoara and earned his doctorate from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology with a thesis on program analysis-supported software understanding. Before intooitus, he was the head of the Software Engineering (SE) division and member of the management board of the FZI Research Center for Information Technology in Karlsruhe, Germany. He was the coordinator of the European research project Q-ImPrESS and was involved in several other national and European research projects. He was the chief architect and lead developer of the SISSy open-source tool chain for automatic detection of quality problems in object-oriented software, and a consultant in numerous technology transfer projects for clients such as ABB Corporate Research, BASF IT Services, F-Secure, CAS, PTV and Keymile. He enjoys cooking and dancing, and has been known to listen to classical music while working.

Dr. Radu Marinescu

Radu is a co-founder of intooitus, a full professor, whose research focuses on the areas of object-oriented software evolution, quality assurance and software maintenance. In 2002 he received a joint PhD from the Politehnica University of Timisoara and the University of Karlsruhe with a thesis on metrics-based quality assessment. His research results on metrics and quality assessment have been adopted by leading IDEs like JBuilder. He is co-author of the book Object-Oriented Metrics in Practice, and the recipient of an IBM Eclipse Innovation Award. For the past ten years, Radu has been constantly working as a consultant and trainer for several well-known IT companies including Siemens, IBM, Alcatel-Lucent, Telelogic and Oce.

George Ganea

George joined intooitus in 2009 and became a partner in 2010. He graduated as a computer engineer from the Technical University of Timisoara and has a master's in software engineering. As part of the LOOSE Research Group, he worked very closely with Ioana and Radu on the prototype technology that would later evolve to become the refined, industrial strength tools that inFusion and inCode are today. He enjoys early spring mornings, small cups of black coffee and huge programming challenges, ideally all three at once.

Ioana Verebi

Ioana joined intooitus in 2009 and became a partner in 2010. She originally wanted to study economics but changed her mind at the last moment, never regretting that decision! She is a computer engineer with a master's in software engineering. Back in 2006, while still an undergraduate, Ioana joined the LOOSE Research Group working together with George and Radu on a research project and prototype system that later evolved into inCode. She dreads to get up early in the morning (luckily she doesn't have to do that very often), but has no problem staying up and code (what appear to be) complicated algorithms, until the wee hours of the morning. She also enjoys watching documentaries (as opposed to almost any movie out there) and wishes to visit Cambodia one day.
