John Crimaldi and three of his students watch a plume move through their flume.

CU Engineering Magazine: The Architecture of Smell

June 8, 2017

How do chemical messages rising from a piece of rotting food signal a mouse to turn left to find it? How does the shape and movement of that mouse’s odor plume alert a hungry predator that it’s getting close? And precisely what goes on inside that predator’s brain when, in response to what it smells, it changes course? These are not the questions John Crimaldi, an engineer who specializes in fluid mechanics, imagined he would be asking someday.Read more »
