Event description: 

The MicroBooNE experiment utilizes a liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) located on-axis in the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab to search for the excess of low energy electromagnetic-like events previously observed by the MiniBooNE experiment. I will present recent work from MicroBooNE in the context of our progress toward understanding the MiniBooNE low-energy excess, with a focus on our deep-learning-based method for identifying low-energy electron neutrino interactions and on our novel approach for evaluating systematic uncertainties related to detector modeling in a LArTPC.
