Sarah Ku is a PhD candidate at Georgia State University studying marketing and international business. Her research examines international differences in marketing organic waste as valuable feedstock. Depletion of resources, climate change, and social disparities highlight the urgent need to utilize waste rather than discard it. Sustainable activities don’t have to involve costly investments if we exploit natural, biological processes through biomimicry. Sarah believes that insects can help save this planet through multiple applications and uses research to evaluate their triple bottom line business opportunities. She is a founding member of The Circular Economy in an IB Context thematic group that is developing in the Sustainability and International Business Shared Interest Group within the Academy of International Business. She also serves on the Scientific Committee for the International Conference on Sustainable Development. Sarah earned her BBA in marketing with a minor in art from the University of West Georgia.
