When I have read an academic paper and send an e-mail to its author, can I say:
I have just read one of your works?
Any native on this?
maybe the author wrote more than one academic paper
Maybe. Who knows?
someone did reply to your post, but they deleted it. they've been doing that a lot
i checked my history. rover asked when would you need to use more than one work.

Technically, you can, but it sounds a but awkward, I'd use papers if that's what it was, or publications
"I just read one of your papers"
"I just read one of your publications"
*Not a teacher
I agree with Ranok; you can say work, but it sounds more like a full book to me, so one of your papers sounds better.
