Jose Eos Trinidad is pursuing a Joint PhD with the Departments of Sociology and Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago. Bringing together organizational and education sociology, his research investigates the spread of school innovation through networked organizations outside the school system. Over the past five years, he has published 29 peer-reviewed journal articles and two books, one of which won the Philippine National Book Award. 

His research can be divided into (1) quantitative studies of K-12 school and organizational policies, (2) qualitative studies of organizational change, and (3) innovative methodological appropriations of causal inference and network analysis. These studies have been supported by the American Sociological Association, the National Academy of Education, Spencer Foundation, RAND Corporation, and the Asian Development Bank.
