Mathematical economists have come up with some great models and contributions to science and math actually. For example linear programming created by Samuelson has a long history of being used in industry.
I also think there's a big gap between micro and macro, which is more vague and hand-wavey.
Also, the economic research I want to do isn't big on economic theory really. It's just "how do we encourage development in this neighborhood?" And there's a lot of scientific support for that. It mostly stems from urban design, logistics and finance. More micro but tbh I don't know a ton about the field of economics, my subject just happens to fall in that department.
Sage for doublepost and my pedantry
