Patricia has a wide range of interests. In 1998 she instigated the planting of the Pa Harakeke on campus, and in 2003 she initiated the MAOR114/ARTH108 Summer school course ‘Nga Mahi a Ringa’, to encourage Maori and other Pacific Island students into research, via their material culture. Recently she undertook research of the Oceanic collection donated by John Macmillan Brown to the Canterbury Museum, and spent three years as contracted researcher for a FRST funded project with Te Roopu Raranga Whatu o Aotearoa, gathering traditional tikanga about the harvesting of kiekie and other weaving resources. She has been involved with Nga Puna Waihanga for a number of years, also edits the Maori Weavers national newsletter.
