She also graduated from Bangor University in 2017 with a Masters of Laws degree with a Distinction, where she focused on International Maritime Law and her thesis bordering on examining the differences and effectiveness of national laws in the USA, UK, and Nigeria in handling oil pollution damage from offshore drilling. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Law at Bangor University. 

Adanna's current research examines the effectiveness of domestic laws in protecting the Arctic ecology from oil pollution damage from offshore oil drilling, focussing on the risks and effects of the oil industry seeking to explore and exploit hydrocarbons in the Arctic, and emphasises on the need for creating a comprehensive civil liability regime at an international level.
