I am unclear what "it" is referring to.  If you are talking about an unmentioned thing, then you should change your preposition. I would probably combine our research interests.


I find that it is a good match for our research interests.


If your interest and my interest are very different things and I need to mention each of them separately:


I find that it is a good match for both your research interest and mine. 


In your sentence, "it" might be referring to our research interests.  If that is the case:


I find that our research interests are a good match for each other.

I find that our research interests match well.
