She said he once broke into her apartment and, on another occasion, threatened to hurt himself if he couldn't see her.
He denies the harassment claims, but admits to the affair.
Both denied the affair when initially confronted about it by their department chair in the middle of that year.
In late 2012, Lee said she was pregnant with twins and moved to Washington State, where some of her family members lived.
Affairs between professors and graduate students aren’t usually advised, even when they’re not expressly prohibited.
And a lawsuit due to proceed to trial involving a former University of Pittsburgh professor and a research assistant in his lab reads like one heck of a cautionary tale. Wang alleges that Lee attempted to sabotage his career and relationships with his family and colleagues, in part by sharing a sexually explicit photo in a mass email and requesting that he be served with a petition for a restraining order during an out-of-state interview.
Julie Husband, in an response to an earlier version of this article, gives the following advice overall: "Launch a public-relations campaign sometime just before decisions come out or even after you've been accepted and yet don't have funding. In any case, do tell the professors who wrote letters of reference for you to that grad school; they may have further advice about what to expect at that school.

Tianyi Wang, former associate professor of infectious diseases and microbiology at Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health, is suing his former research assistant, Aram Lee, for invasion of privacy, fraud and defamation, among other counts, in a U. Lee and Wang began dating in 2012, court documents show.
Wang was married to someone else and Pittsburgh had a policy against professor-student sexual relationships when the professor is teaching or evaluating the work or research of the student.

These are my own opinions about applying to grad school. The first thing you need to know is that all graduate schools (at least in the US) subscribe to a national acceptance deadline of April 15.
