Luigi Gentile is an associate professor of physical chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Bari Aldo Moro, Bari, Italy. Luigi is also a permanent member of the Center for Colloids and Surface Science (CSGI), Florence, Italy; He is a member of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS); the Italian Society of Chemistry (SCI), and the Italian Neutron Spectroscopy Society (SISN).

He pursues a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between chemical composition and complex supramolecular structures. He is focusing his research activity on the out-of-equilibrium phenomena of complex fluids. His research focuses on colloidal and nanostructured complex fluids: colloidal suspensions, emulsions, liquid crystals, and polymers. This includes many systems of practical or biological importance, such as soaps, food materials, cellulose, soil organic matter, and fungal decomposition. He is an expert on the rheological properties of materials and their relationship with the supramolecular structure. He is working with small-angle light, X-ray, and neutron scattering to reveal the structural feature of materials.

One of his main research activities is stimuli-responsive complex fluids and their applications.
