Anne is well known for the quality of her work, which
is mainly the preparation of thin sections, which the Department of Geology uses on a daily basis to identify rocks and to train students. The manufacture of these sections is a delicate, high-precision activity, and the sections Anne produces are said by many Lakehead faculty members to be "among the finest
in the world." Anne prepares hundreds of samples
a year − work that takes her far beyond a normal working day − and it is not unusual to see Anne in her lab evenings and weekends finishing work.
Over the years, Anne Hammond has been involved in the training of many graduate and undergraduate students, providing them with the skills they need to complete their research. She has also been a willing and enthusiastic participant in activities of the Department including outreach activities such as public displays and student recruitment.
