47. Eric Fèvre (La Chât 1993)

Posted By Alumni Office, vendredi 24 octobre 2014
Eric Fèvre1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Four years, from 10th grade to IB graduation.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My parents worked for a UN agency and were transferred to Geneva.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mrs Kessler – she allowed me to study biology in her IB level class even though I had not done IGCSE level biology.  She took a risk because she believed in me; I went on to be a biologist in my career – I owe her a lot.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The old steps outside the library. We put the world to rights on those steps every lunchtime.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
The Source de l’Allondon at the foot of the Jura mountains.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I’m Professor of Veterinary Infectious Diseases in the Institute of Infection and Global Health, University of Liverpool, UK, but live with my family full time in Kenya where I manage a research team hosted by the International Livestock Research Institute, studying zoonotic diseases (diseases transmitted between animals and humans).

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Ensure it maintains exceptional standards of education while providing a great world view for its students.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Anything is possible; be open to all options.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Realising what a privileged life we all led.
