He joined the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development at Texas A&M University in 2015 and is a Research Affiliate of Rice University’s Houston Education Research Consortium (HERC). Dr. Bowen teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in program evaluation and applied quantitative research methods in education and human resource development.

He has received over $220,000 in external research funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, Spencer Foundation, and the Houston Endowment to support these research efforts. He has written 12 peer-reviewed journal articles, a book chapter, and numerous articles, reviews, and reports through various media.
