I have been in the panel of experts for the project Vers une spiritualisation de l’écologie? funded by the Swiss National Funding for Research (FNS) in 2016-2020 and led by Irene Becci at the University of Lausanne.

I have reviewed manuscripts for the following journals and publishers: Appetite, Archives de sciences sociales des religions, Critical Research on Religion, Journal of Contemporary Religion, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, Open Information Science, Partecipazione e conflitto, Polis, Politics & Religion, Presses Universitaires de Rennes, Rassegna italiana di sociologia, Revista Crítica de Ciências Sociais, Revue des Sciences Sociales, Revue d’histoire ecclésiastique, Social Compass, Sociologia urbana e rurale, Sociology Compass.

Since 2008 I sit in the board of the journal Etnografia e ricerca qualitativa of which I have been co-editor in chief between 2012 and 2015.
