Abhishyant Kidangoor

Abhishyant is a reporter, writer and video producer with a focus on producing stories about climate change, environment and biodiversity in South Asia. He is particularly interested in stories that fall in the intersection of climate change, health and technology.

A graduate in mechanical engineering, Abhishyant started his career in journalism in 2014 in television news in New Delhi. Later, he worked with TIME for five years in New York and Hong Kong where he produced news and feature videos, while also writing stories on politics, health and climate change in India. He has covered the political unrest in Hong Kong in 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on rural parts of India and global vaccine inequality—all stories that strongly shaped his perspective and pushed him to explore new approaches to storytelling.

Outside of journalism, Abhishyant is a huge fan of history and historical fiction. He is also always on the lookout for new hiking trails.
