Graham Jones

Astrophysicist & Science Communicator

Graham was our guy on the ground in Angola for the 2017 annular eclipse; he went on to become an integral part of our team for all things astronomy. He has a BSc in astrophysics from Royal Holloway, University of London, and an MSc in science communication from the University of Edinburgh. Before joining us, he taught at the University of Shiga Prefecture in Japan. His favorite piece of astronomy trivia is that the word for an eclipse in Hindi, grahan, is almost the same as his name.

Working in Our Team

We are responsible for all textual content, but that involves far more than growing our extensive library of articles. Our daily work covers fields as diverse as SEO, database maintenance, research, UX, marketing, and content localization for our German and Norwegian websites.

From keeping our users up-to-date about the world's time zones to working together with programmers and designers to develop a new service, editorial work at timeanddate.com is diverse, interdisciplinary, multicultural, and fun.
