During 2012-2013 she was a Visiting Research Fellow at Columbia Law School Center for Gender and Sexuality, and in 2013 she was an invited Visiting Scholar at University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law.

Her clerkship was completed at the State Attorney's office in Jerusalem.
Adi's doctoral research aims at offering an initial critical examination of the value "body" in bodily injury claims based on the presumption that bodily injury claims are a central locus for constructing the body, and relying on the assumption that the current social understanding of the body remains incomplete without theorizing the body in law. The project aspires to examine the configurations of knowledge concerning the body as produced in bodily injury law, to critically appraise the implications of these configurations of knowledge on the recognition of bodily damages or the eligibility of tort remedies, and to inquire how these configurations of knowledge affect the legal construction of body-derived identities (i.e., disabled or sexual identities).
