Dr. Peter Webley is a Research Associate Professor of Remote Sensing in the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, as well as the Associate Director of Research at the Alaska Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration (ACUASI). His research focuses on natural hazards, especially volcanic eruptions, and the use of remote sensing data from the ground to space and back to map their extent and develop change detection algorithms. Peter is the Vice-President of UAF’s first start-up, V-ADAPT, Inc., formed in 2013 and has successfully licensed intellectual property, been awarded small business innovation research projects and a US patent as well as been inducted into the State of Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame 2016 – 2017 class.

As a research faculty member and the co-founder of UAF’s first startup company Peter works hard to support and advise faculty, staff, and students to develop their ideas, protect their intellectual property, and commercialize their work as they develop into our next generation of UAF entrepreneurs and solve tomorrow’s issues today.
