Dogus helps clients deliver effective, usable, best-value solutions tailored to achieve their objectives and to win stakeholder and regulatory acceptance. He develops and leads multidisciplinary teams to solve complex problems from early planning through design, construction, and closure.

He pioneered new sediment remediation technologies, including in situ stabilization/solidification (ISS) of subaqueous sediments and thin-layer sediment capping. He led the early planning and design of the first-to-field, full-scale, mass-mixing ISS remediation project in the world. He also provided on-site construction support for the work, which was completed ahead of schedule, under budget and received regulatory approval for closure. In addition, he led the design of risk management measures for the largest urban waterfront development project in North America, integrating tailored environmental solutions to support construction of a new naturalized river valley in legacy industrial land.

To advance the state of the practice, Dogus coauthored ASTM International standard guidance document on corrective action objectives on sediment sites. Dogus also served on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources External Advisory Group for contaminated sediments. He has authored articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented his work in national and international conferences. He was an invited speaker at the American Chemical Society Fall meeting to present his work on the use of thin-layer reactive cap applications in sediment sites. In 2020, Kendall Bay sediment remediation project earned the Edison Award for “Sustainable Change for the Good.”
