Since 1993, Corty has been a member of the psychology faculty at Penn State Erie, the Behrend College. There he teaches principles of measurement, abnormal psychology, human sexuality, introductory psychology, and, of course, statistics.

Corty has more than three dozen peer-reviewed publications. His research on
ejaculatory latencies received worldwide attention, including being made fun of on
the David Letterman show. His statistics textbook was recognized as a Book of the Year by the American Journal of Nursing in 1997. Corty serves as a member of the editorial board for The Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy and previously was on the editorial board for The Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.
Corty was born in Wilmington, Delaware, and still celebrates Delaware Day every
December 7th. He now lives in Beachwood, Ohio, with his wife, two sons, and two
cats. He likes to eat and to cook, loves to ride his bicycles, and is working on improving his pool game.
