Dr. Frank Barnes, of the University of Colorado, Boulder, has been awarded the Bernard Gordon prize by the National Academy of Engineering. The honor comes with a check for $500,000. Barnes, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, was cited for “pioneering an interdisciplinary telecommunications program,” which helps engineering students master economics and policy issues.

Barnes is currently the chair of a National Academy of Sciences–National Research Council committee investigating the potential health effects of PAVE PAWS radar radiation. He is a former president of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (2000-2001).
