Rotarians Celebrate Good News with Dollars to Benefit

the Rotary Foundation and

the Cambridge Rotary Educational Fund


There was ample happiness about the Hyatt Regency generously providing us with free parking for our meetings!  Rotarians were happy to share the savings with the Rotary Foundation and the Cambridge Rotary Educational Fund.

We were fortunate to have Roland Lindh, a visiting Rotarian from Sweden and a visiting scholar at Harvard University, as our speaker. Roland has an impressive background in science:


  • Chemical engineer, Lund Institute of Technology 1983,
  • TeknD 1988 Theoretical Chemistry,
  • Docent in Theoretical Chemistry 1992
  • Professor in Theoretical Chemistry (Lund University) 2003-2010,
  • Professor and Chair, Dept of Chemistry - Ångström, the Theoretical Chemistry Programme, UU, 2010


Roland spoke to us about understanding Multiconfigurational Quantum Chemistry, and attempted to demystify a subject that has historically been considered difficult to learn. He explained how these methods can be used in various areas of chemistry, such as chemical reactions in ground and excited states, transition metal and other heavy element systems.
