Shagun's research focuses on public trust in local governments, with an emphasis on variation in trust in municipal governance bodies among residents of unauthorized colonies in Delhi, India. She uses network analysis and survey methods to investigate the strength of household ties to neighborhood associations, focusing specifically on localized forms of perceived effective capacity as mechanisms that influence trust in government at the local level.
