Speaking about a woman who works in a university department
Il professore le affida una ricerca su una strana storia popolare.

Wondering whether the verb research needs a preposition after it and what the best translation for affidare would be.

I'd say something like: The professor tells her to research a strange folk story.
Thank you

    You are welcome!

    By the way, I think you might also say:

    The professor/lecturer assigned her a research paper/project on an odd folk story.

    I wonder which one sounds better to a native speaker...
