Cauê Borlina

Graduate Student

Caue Borlina started his PhD in Planetary Science at MIT in the Fall of 2016. He studies with Prof. Benjamin Weiss the evolution of the Earth’s magnetic field, focusing on when it started and how it variated during the first billion years of the Earth. He is also interested in habitability across our universe. Before coming to MIT he completed his B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan.
