Professor Zee has authored or co-authored more than 200 scientific publications and many books. He has studied particle physics, anomalies in physics, random matrix theory, superconductivity, the quantum Hall effect, and other issues in theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, evolutionary biology as well as their various interrelations.

He has also written a textbook on quantum field theory whose title is "Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell" as well as several other books about physics, the Chinese culture, and other topics. Zee is also an achieved teacher who usually teaches courses on general relativity and advanced quantum field theory.

Zee's scientific publications have received about 10,000 citations and his h-index is about 50 as of 2006.
