Our team

Dr. Radu Marinescu

Radu is a co-founder of intooitus, an associate professor and researcher focused 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.

Dr. Adrian Trifu

Adrian is a software engineer and co-founder of intooitus. He graduated as a computer and software engineer from the Technical University of Timisoara, 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 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.

George Ganea

George has been part of our team from day 1. 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. These days, he is the lead developer of inFusion, and one of only two people that have clearance to enter some of its darkest and most impenetrable corners. He enjoys early spring mornings, small cups of black coffee and huge programming challenges, ideally all three at once.

Ioana Verebi

Ioana has been a part of the intooitus team from the very beginning. 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. Ioana is the lead developer of inCode, but feels equally at home working the insides of inFusion. 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.
