Change context to com_users.user and the item to article author's user object. Since some articles may not have an author, this code should be wrapped in author check:

// Only run if article has an author.
if ($this->item->created_by)
    // Get author's custom fields.
    $fields = FieldsHelper::getFields('com_users.user', JFactory::getUser($this->item->created_by), true);

    // Display fields here.
