Is it possible to start android studio AVD from Katalon?

Greetings.

I wrote bundle of tests for android and them works perfectly with Android Studio emulator (AVD), but I need to start emulator manually. I can do it via AVD manager or using such command in terminal:
./emulator -avd PixelAPI26 -gpu host

Is it possible to execute this command within test case/suite to automate test execution or start AVD from Katalon in any other way?

And further - is it possible to check whether AVD is started to ensure my tests will run without human interaction?

I am using Mac OS, if it is important.

Thanks in advance.
