Zahid's main research interests are in data mining, data analysis, data pre-processing, knowledge discovery, making sense of data and future prediction. His more specific research interests include classification and clustering algorithms, missing value analysis, outliers detection, data cleaning and preprocessing, privacy preserving data mining, privacy issues related to Data Mining on social network users, and applications of data mining in real life.

Zahid served as the Conference Chair along with another colleague for the 16th AusDM 2018 at CSU, Bathurst, as a Program Chair for AusDM 2016 and AusDM 2015. He is a steering committee member of the Australasian Data Mining Conference. Since January 2019 he is serving as the Director of the Data Science Research Unit (DSRU) at CSU. He served as the founder leader of the Data Mining Research Area (DaMRA) which is one of the 5 research groups within DSRU from 2016 to March 2019. He also served as the Deputy Leader of the Health Services Research Area within Faculty of Business Justice and Behavioural Sciences from 2014 to February 2019.

Zaihd was a co-recepient of a number of industry funded projects. One of these projects received an Innovation Award in 2017 from the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation. Another project was evaluated by the funding body through Deloitte for an independent evaluation and received an "outstanding" feedback from the assessment team.
