Here are the combined sentences:

Emily was a student working on her doctoral dissertation at the Standford University library when she noticed her fiancé, Robert, sitting in a dark corner holding hands with her best friend, Natalie.

Robert, Emily’s fiancé and a graduate Student at Stanford University, was extremely embarrassed and he felt terrible that Emily saw him sitting with Natalie in a dark corner because he hurt Emily’s feelings and lost her trust.

Emily’s bad temper got the best of her after realizing that Robert cheated on her, so she ran after Robert, beat him up, and slammed him down the library stairs.
