Dr James Bowden

Lecturer , Accounting and Finance

Since joining Strathclyde Business School in 2019, my research and teaching activities have primarily focussed on different areas of financial technology (fintech). My research activities involve utilisation of textual analysis methods to investigate the extent to which investors and observers respond to sentiment expressed in company filings, news reporting, and social media. For example, previous research investigating the links between Reddit activity and cryptocurrency trading has been published in Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, while another paper investigating the relationship between news reporting and economic sentiment indicators has been published in the Journal of Comparative Economics. I have also previously published in the European Journal of Finance.
