Rebecca Seifried is a graduate student in the Anthropology Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She obtained her B.A. in Anthropology from Wheaton College (IL) in 2007 and her M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2011. She has worked for Dr. William Parkinson as a Graduate Research Assistant at The Field Museum since 2011.

Rebecca's research focuses on the relationship between marginal economic zones and the larger state systems into which they are incorporated. Specifically, she combines settlement pattern analysis and remote sensing to study changes in landscape in Medieval and Early Modern Greece.

Rebecca began working with the Körös Regional Archaeological Project in 2011, and she has participated on archaeological research projects in the North American Southwest and Greece. In addition to assisting the project as a GIS specialist, she works with the geophysical team to gather and process magnetometric data. She also uses historic maps, aerial photographs, and satellite imagery to decipher more recent changes in the landscape that can affect the preservation and interpretation of archaeological data at sites on the Great Hungarian Plain.
