Staff - Leah Sullivan

Leah Sullivan is a Senior Fishery Biologist with more than 15 years of experience in conducting small and large scale acoustic, radio and PIT telemetry studies with various anadromous and catadromous to assess downstream and upstream migration, timing, and distribution as it is related to hydroelectric projects in the United States Pacific Northwest and East Coast. 

She has 10 years of expertise on hydroacoustic telemetry projects, domestic and foreign, primarily using acoustic telemetry to evaluate the fine-scale three-dimensional behavior of migratory species as they pass downstream or upstream of a variety of hydroelectric projects.  Ms. Sullivan is a participant of the Priest Rapids Bypass Design Team where she has collaborated with engineers and biologists on behalf of Grant PUD to design a near future top-spill passage alternative at Priest Rapids Dam. 

She received an MS in Fisheries Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2005 and a BS in Marine and Freshwater Biology from the University of New Hampshire in 1997.
