Questioning the application of end product : Ph.D. Philosophy

I met Lucy Whalley in HI Boston (Hostel I am staying in). She's my first international room mate! :) Lucy is pursuing Ph.D. from Imperial college of London in the area which is an amalgamation of three major things - 'defects, solar cells and simulation.' While having a conversation with her on various challenges and her approach towards PhD, she said - 

PhD is more about questioning the application and usage of end product! 

The line touched a chord in my heart. 

Isn't it sad to invest 4-5 years (of Ph.D.) doing things without questioning how it's beneficial to the common, to the society and to the environment?

Lucy is going to present her work through poster on 29th Nov, 2016 at Hynes , don't miss to catch her for discussions!
