Charoula Stathopoulou is an Associate Professor of Didactics of Mathematics in the Department of Special Education at the University of Thessaly. She teaches Basic Notions and Techniques of Mathematics, Didactics of Mathematics, Applied Didactics of Mathematics, and Main Geometrical Concepts and Their Teaching.

Professor Stathopoulou completed a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and pursued additional postgraduate study in the Didactics and Methodology of Mathematics at the University of Athens. She studied Social Anthropology and completed her doctorate in Ethnomathematics at the Aegean University.

Her main research foci include: Ethnomathematics and Sociocultural Factors of Mathematics teaching/learning in and out of school, Language and Mathematics teaching, CTI and Drama in Education Techniques for Mathematics teaching, Mathematics teaching for students with special needs, teachers’ education.

She contributed in a lot of research and educational projects, while now she participates in the following collaborative research projects: «Roma education» and «Multiculturalism, Migration, Mathematics Education and Language« (COMENIUS Multilateral projects). She is member of national and international scientific associations (ENEDIM, HMS, MES, CIEAEM, ISGEm), and was invited to become an official member of CIEAEM (International Commission for the Study and Improvement of Mathematics Teaching) in July, 2013. Dr. Stathopoulou has been a reviewer and member of scientific committees of Greek and international conferences, as well as a member of editorial teams in the following Greek and international journals: «International Journal for Mathematics in Education”, "Euclid III," "Review of? Science and Education".

She was invited as a keynote speaker at the international conference EME 06 - Elementary Mathematics Education, in Portugal (2006), and for two lectures in the United States, by the Mathematics Department of Saint Joseph’s University, and by the Department of Curriculum, Cultures, and Child-Youth Studies, the School of Education, Arcadia University, during the 2012-13 Fall semester as a Visiting International Scholar at Arcadia. Also she was invited in Greek conferences.

Professor Stathopoulou had published more than 90 papers in international and Greek journals, volumes and conference proceedings that are indexed in international databases with citations in Greece and international literature. She is the author of, «Ethnomathematics: Exploring the cultural dimension of both mathematics and mathematics education” and co-author of “Interaction between mathematics education and school failure: An engineering educational approach focusing on the case of the multi-island complex of the Dodecanese”.
