The MicroBooNE experiment utilizes a liquid argon time projection chamber located on-axis in the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermilab to search for the excess of low energy electromagnetic-like events previously seen by the MiniBooNE experiment. I will present recent results from MicroBooNE in the context of our progress in the low-energy excess search, including both detector physics and neutrino-argon interaction measurements. Additionally, I will highlight the status of our deep-learning-based approach for identifying low-energy electron neutrino interactions within the MicroBooNE detector.
