Anne Raymond joined the Paleontological Society as a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Currently, a faculty member in the Department of Geology & Geophysics at Texas A&M University, her research contributions focus on the evolutionary paleoecology of plant communities from the Silurian to the Anthropocene, and plant taphonomy in modern swamps and shallow-shelf marine environments. At Texas A&M, she teaches a mix of undergraduate and graduate courses and has worked to maintain the strength of the paleontology program by advocating for new faculty hires and graduate students. She believes that educating voters is the most important thing we do. In Dinosaur World, which is large general education course, she engages non-STEM students in scientific approaches to the study of evolution and environmental change. She has advised a diverse group of graduate students, in terms of background (domestic, international, Latinx, Asian-American, Middle Eastern and Caucasian); and discipline (paleobotany, marine invertebrate paleontology, sedimentology, and sedimentary geochemistry). She became a Fellow of the Paleontological Society in 2015 and has served the Society as Councilor at Large, Chair of the South-Central Section, as a member of the Fellows Committee, and (perhaps the most fun) as a member of the Second Century Development Committee.
