About the CPS Lectures Team
Kelvin Chen was invited to join CPS Lectures as a 2013 summer associate after he completed his first year at Amherst College. A native of Massachusetts, he graduated from Wellesley High School, Wellesley, Massachusetts, where he achieved notable academic successes in both chemistry and math. The founder of his high school's squash program, Kelvin is an accomplished squash player and volunteered as a coach at Kidsquash in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At Amherst, Kelvin's professional interests include medical anthropology and evolutionary biology. Academics and squash aside, Kelvin is fond of Hans Zimmer music, anything written by Malcolm Gladwell, and prefers tea over coffee. He is grateful to be part of CPS Lectures and is excited to contribute to an organization that benefits such a diverse community.

Kathryn Warshaw was invited to join the CPS Lectures team as an associate for the summer of 2013. She graduated from Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach, California, where she distinguished herself athletically as Varsity volleyball team captain, academically as an AP Scholar and National Honor Society member, and musically as president of the choral society.
As an incoming sophomore at Amherst College in Massachusetts, Kathryn is focusing her studies in History, particularly 19th and 20th century US History and in Architectural Studies, specifically sustainable architecture.
