Dr. Patterson is a physiotherapist, an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, and a Senior Scientist at The KITE Research Institute at UHN.

Dr. Patterson examines walking and stroke-related impairments with a variety of clinical, behavioural, and neurophysiological measures. Her ongoing work is exploring 1) motor learning and recovery of walking after stroke, 2) the development and progression of osteoarthritis after stroke and 3) novel rhythm-, music- and dance-based neurorehabilitation interventions.
