Eswar is currently is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science Engineering at IIT Indore. Prior joining at IIT Indore he worked as an Assistant Professor at the school of engineering, Mahindra Ecole Centrale, Hyderabad. He was a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. KT. Ramesh's group at Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute, Johns Hopkins University from 2011-2014. Eswar has done his PhD from the Department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science under the supervision of Prof. U. Ramamurty. His research interests lies in understanding the deformation behavior of materials at different length and time scales.

As a graduate student he has carried out experiments (complementary simulations) and investigated the deformation behavior of advanced materials such as Bulk metallic glasses, Polymer nano-composites, OFHC copper. His PhD thesis titled "Plastic deformation during indentation of amorphous and crystalline materials" addresses the issues like pressure sensitive plastic flow in amorphous materials at room and high temperatures, role of indenter angle on the plastic zone shape and size in strain hardening materials. 

As a postdoc at JHU, he is studying the dynamic deformation behavior of advanced ceramics and magnesium alloys with the aid of high strain rate experiments. Besides this, he is actively involved in in-situ SEM micro-mechanical testing of single and poly crystalline Mg to understand the specimen size and orientation effects on the deformation behavior, twinning dynamics.
