Gabriel B. Mindlin is an Associate Professor of physics at the University of Buenos Aires and a scientist whose research focuses on the physical mechanisms underlying the production of songs by songbirds.

His research has produced mathematical and computer models which realistically reproduces songs of several species.[1][2] He has published three books and over 100 original research papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings which have received over 2400 citations.[3]

Mindlin graduated in physics from University of La Plata (Argentina, 1987) and received a PhD from Drexel University (1991). He was Senior Fellow of Santa Fe Institute (2002–2004)[4] and received an Arthur Taylor Winfree award from the International Center for Theoretical Physics (Trieste, 2004).[5] In addition, he was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2010).[6]
