He lived for a year and a half in France .
In 1802 he was appointed assistant professor of history and geography at the University of Copenhagen, and the following year as extraordinary professor. In 1805 he became secretary of the "Directorate of the University and the Scholarly Schools", where he came to carry out extensive work until 1848, from 1812 as an assessor . He contributed to the reforms in Denmark's university and school system during these years.
In 1811 he was elected secretary of the commission that would carry out the approved establishment of a new university in Christiania. Later he followed the Norwegian university's development with interest from Denmark. He also worked for the restoration of Sorø Academy .
