Bryan Routledge is an associate professor of finance at the Tepper School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 1996 and a bachelor of commerce from Queens University in 1987. His research focuses on a broad selection of topics in finance. Current research applies quantitative text analysis and natural language processing to economic and financial research questions (e.g., how management discussion and analysis conveys risk, and how Twitter can track public opinion). Other recent research investigates the quantitative properties of asset prices and macroeconomics such as the positive correlation of asset returns with future economic growth, understanding the connection between risk attitudes and asset pricing dynamics, and the risk and return properties of oil prices. He has taught a wide variety of courses at the Tepper School in many of their programs. Current teaching includes the introductory finance class to MBA students, Financial Economics for MSCF students, and a more specialized class called “Alpha: Implementing Quantitative Strategies.” He is also a frequent teacher in the Tepper School’s Executive Education Programs in finance.
