Is there a way to list all the channels created by a given user (or by Me)? A search query like:

#channels created_by:@user.name

I dont see this information on user's profile page on Slack desktop client or Web.

You can do it via the API. Sample code in python:

client = WebClient(...)
response = client.conversations_list()
channels_i_created = [x for x in response.data['channels']
                      if x['creator'] == my_user_id]

Your user id can be obtained via client.users_list given a username. See https://api.slack.com/methods/conversations.list and https://api.slack.com/methods/users.list for more.
