From 2014 bis 2016, he participated in the framework of a project funded by Land Schleswig-Holstein on the cataloguing of the letters of Theodor Kirchner for their digital presentation. He then began preparing the partial estate of Joseph Joachim for purposes of digitization, a project that was funded by the HERMANN REEMTSMA STIFTUNG as part of the funding program Kunst auf Lager (Art in Storage).
