     Hadrien Mélot


I'm Professor in the Computer Science Department, Faculty of Science, Université de Mons (UMONS, Belgium) and lead the Algorithms Lab. Also, I'm the general coordinator for international relations of the Faculty of Science, and of the Computer Science Department.

I teach Algorithms and Programming I (using Python); Data Structures I; Artificial Intelligence; Approximation Algorithms and supervise a programming project in Java.

The main topic of my research is in extremal graph theory. In particular, I study how computers can help researchers in this field to find conjectures, counter-examples or idea of proofs both interactively or automatically. To this aim, I have developped the conjecture making system GraPHedron in collaboration with the Computer Science Department of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
