Wonjae Suh

Head of Filming and Communications

Hello! My name is Wonjae, and I am a senior at RHHS. My interests are geology, physics, specifically quantum and shock physics, and political science. My main interest is in geophysics, where I’m a research assistant at the Wicks mineral physics lab at Johns Hopkins. In the time I don’t spend reading or working a shift at Wendy’s, I like walking my dog, running, and listening to new music. Like for our school’s Physics Club and Science Olympiad, my job at TEDxRiverHillHS is to help with filming and photography. Otherwise, I’m also in charge of the communication with the entertainers.
