Jeffrey Ball has taught at Stanford University and, as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, at colleges across the United States. At Stanford, he is the scholar-in-residence at the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance, a joint initiative of Stanford Law School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He also is a lecturer at the law school. He heads the Steyer-Taylor Center's China Project, which is analyzing changes in China's solar industry, the world's largest, in an effort to recommend ways that different countries could play to their strengths as the solar industry grows and globalizes. The goal of the analysis is to help map a way to scale up solar power in the way that is most economically efficient for the world. As part of the project, Ball has taught a law-school graduate seminar that has attracted students from various Stanford schools, including law, business, engineering, and political science. As a member of the Council of Independent Colleges' Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program, he periodically travels to liberal-arts colleges around the country for week-long stays during which he gives a public lecture and teaches classes that typically focus on writing and on energy and environmental matters, particularly climate change.
