Tiago Falótico is a biologist and primatologist, graduated at the University of São Paulo. He got a MSc. and a PhD. in Experimental Psychology (Animal Behavior) at University of São Paulo. He was a posdoc researcher at University of Oxford in the Primate Archaeology project. Now he is a Young Researcher Fellow at the School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities (University of São Paulo), working on the "Capuchin Culture" project. He founded and works at the Neotropical Primates Research Group (Neoprego), that has the aims of maintain long-term studies on neotropical primates and spread the results of the researches to the general population, specially to the people living around the study sites.

Culture was for a long time believed to be uniquely human. Across primates, culture is known to be present in several species, ranging from object tool use for foraging to social conventions. Chimpanzees have been long studied and there is a long catalogue of their cultural variations, showing that even when ecological and genetic variations are ruled out, they exhibit cultural behavior...
Tool use has been observed in chimpanzees, orangutans, long-tailed macaques and capuchin monkeys, and can present great variation between populations. Capuchins use percussive stone tools to process and access protected resources, such as seeds, fruits and mollusks, and also as "hoes" to dig up tubers, roots and invertebrates from their burrows. To reach for hidden prey, some capuchins'...
The project aims to continue the study of the use of tools by a group of capuchin monkeys (Sapajus libidinosus) in Serra da Capivara National Park, focusing mainly on the ontogenetic development of the use of stick probes, a common behavior in the repertoire of local groups, but virtually absent in other wild populations. This population is the only one observed, so far, exhibiting an e...
The goal of the "Primate Archaeology" project is to address the systematic comparative study of wild primate technologies, recognition of the time depth and cultural variation among those technologies, and construction of suitable models for relating the evolutionary trajectories of human and non-human tool use. The posdoc will work with two of the three species targets of the project, ...
