Ricardo “Ricky” Punzalan is an associate professor of archives and digital curation at the School of Information and a steering committee member of the Museum Studies Program at the University of Michigan. He studies the access and use of digitized anthropological archives and ethnographic data on academic and Indigenous researchers. His research focuses on virtual reunification and digital repatriation of cultural heritage collections. This research brought to the fore a critical challenge faced by underserved and Indigenous communities and created dialogs between communities and institutions. To do this work, he has designed and carried out community-based, participatory research projects that incorporated community perspectives on collections representation, access, and use. He currently co-directs ReConnect/ReCollect: Reparative Connections to Philippine Collections at the University of Michigan, a project that is developing frameworks and practices for reparative work with Philippine colonial collections at the university.
