Neal Fann

Senior Policy Analyst
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Neal Fann is a senior policy analyst at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He has over 15 years of experience in conducting benefit-cost analyses of air pollution regulations and policies. These analyses combine evidence from the air pollution epidemiology and economics literature to estimate the monetary value of the associated benefits. Examples of his work include the EPA’s mercury and air toxics regulations as well as repeal of the Clean Power Plan. He performs these assessments using the environmental Benefits Mapping and Analysis Program ‒ Community Edition (BenMAP-CE), an open-source computer model available online. He has published extensively in the peer-reviewed literature, for example, on characterizing health impacts of air pollution among susceptible populations and exploring the effects of climate change on future air quality.
