Welcome! I think you're the first I've seen in the group with J D Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics in his library. Looks like we share a fair number of physics books!

I'm an electrical engineer, and I focused on electromagnetics for many years. My current interest is bioengineering and neurophysiology. I used Jackson's book in grad school.
