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