Dr. Cauê BorlinaFuture Faculty
Cauê uses magnetic fields from the present and the past to understand planetary formation and evolution, and how these affect the habitability of a planet. In the Purdue Planetary Magnetics Laboratory, Cauê and his group investigates these questions using different tools including micro-paleomagnetism to target the magnetic record of terrestrial and extraterrestrial rocks, and modeling of planetary magnetic field evolution. Cauê is very excited in using these tools to work on multi-disciplinary projects to understand the evolution of protoplanetary disks, magnetic field generation in planets and moons, the role of magnetic fields in habitability, among others.
Cauê earned a BSE in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan. He holds a PhD in Planetary Science from MIT. Before starting at Purdue in Fall 2024 he was a Blaustein Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins University.
