Scott wishes he had a list of research projects for when students come to him wanting to do research. It must be that time of year, because I'm meeting with two students next week about summer research projects. I do have a list of projects, but as Scott mentions, some are trivial and some are incredibly difficult. It's hard to come up with a good project, and even when you do, you've got to match a project to a student's skills and inclination. So no real advice for anyone, but maybe someone has advice for me?
