I'm a freshman in college who is still trying to figure out exactly what I want to do. Currently, I'm in a biological engineering program and doing well in the intro math/science/engineering courses. Until recently, I thought that I wanted be a scientist working in the newly established field of biophysics due to my love for biology and math/physics, but after joining a neuroscience lab and working on a somewhat theoretical project I think I have changed my mind... I actually find it quite boring. Let me give a little background: I first became interested in research during high school after a summer of field work with birds. This experience made me realize how tangible science really can be. The next summer, I worked for a month at a national park in Michigan doing conservation work and loved it. These two experienced really made me appreciate and "connect" with the outdoors. Up until recently, I always thought that being a field biologist was basically the only way to combine science and the outdoors. The problem is that I want to do something that is very quantitative as well. So I figured my only option was to either choose biology and work in the outdoors doing field work that won't take advantage of my quantitative skills or work in physics/engineering and be cooped up in a lab all my life but get to enjoy doing the math. I thought I could sacrifice not being outdoors, but I'm starting to realize otherwise. I recently found out about the field of geophysics which sounds like a great mix of outdoor field work and quantitative lab work. I'm just looking for some other suggestions for science/physics fields that would include outdoor field work and that may match my interests. Thanks to all who can help!
