I cannot get the correct answer. I am using the area of a cylinder with .15 m as radius and .2 m as height times the height to get the volume times 2 atm as the pressure.

Pa x m^3 is equal to one Joule. You have to convert the atm to Pascals to make the units equivalent to a Joule. 1 atm=101325 Pascals.

work= -Pext x delta V
delta V= -pi x r^2 x d
use delta V and the pressure given in atm multiploied by the conversion to joules to find the amount of work done.
