About Carina

Carina Belvin is a physics PhD student in Nuh Gedik’s group at MIT. She received her bachelor’s degree in Physics and Mathematics from Wellesley College in 2016. In her PhD thesis research, Carina utilizes time-domain and ultrafast terahertz spectroscopy to unveil the dynamics of low-energy collective excitations in strongly correlated electron systems. Carina is also a strong advocate for women in STEM through her involvement in the Graduate Womxn in Physics group at MIT and Science Club for Girls in Cambridge, MA. In her spare time, Carina enjoys running and playing the violin.
