    Esteban Baus Carrera, M.A., is the Dean of the College of Exact and Natural Sciences at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador (PUCE). He is responsible for the academic and administrative aspects of the college, which houses the biology, chemistry and physics/mathematics departments. He serves as the point of contact with other colleges, provost offices and external stakeholders.

    Esteban earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from PUCE and went on to get a master’s degree in management of community development also from PUCE. Before becoming dean, he worked for twelve years as the projects coordinator of the Center for Research on Health in Latin America (formerly known as the Center for Infectious and Chronic Disease Research) at PUCE, where he gained extensive experience in strategic planning and personnel and project management.

    Under his leadership, he helped the center become one of the most prestigious and productive scientific organizations in Ecuador. During his tenure, the center grew from a management model of a single researcher to one of multiple principal investigators, and from a team of five people to forty, which included researchers, professors, technicians, undergraduate and graduate students. One of Esteban’s most noteworthy accomplishments during that time was to oversee and carry out the complex logistics involved in the center’s ongoing tropical disease research projects with multicultural, multidisciplinary teams.
