    Question New and switching fields: Where do I start?

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Dan. I am currently finishing a masters degree in economics but I have decided that this is not what I want!

    I have been interested in climate change for a while and my research has focused on flood insurance. As I dive more and more into the subject I find myself less interested in economics and more interested in statistics and making predictions. I am also fascinated by how the insurance industry will adapt to climate risk.

    So I know I want to work on climate change, risk management and insurance but I don't know where to start! How do I know if I want to be a statistician or an actuary? What are some resources I can explore and where do I begin?

    This has been on my mind for almost two years so I am quite sure this is not a spontaneous decision. I am truly committed to these interests and I have finally admitted to myself I am in the wrong program. I am ready to start working towards this as my career, but I am not sure where to start!

    I hope (and foresee) to be on here a bunch so I look forward to getting to know you all.

    Best,
    Dan
