Yahav Avigal

I am a third year PhD student at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Ken Goldberg in the AUTOLab.

My research interests are in robotic grasping and motion planning in dynamic environments using deep learning. In my work I explore how to: transport objects fast without dropping or spilling their content, leverage NeRF to manipulate transparent objects, and applying dynamic motions to manipulate garments.
