    I'm not sure what you are looking for but at the NASA website they list the following. She is apparently going to rewire the ISS power grid. Then she is set to take over as Expedition 14 flight engineer in place of Thomas Reiter, and then stay on to join the station's Expedition 15 crew.

    In her history they list on NASA's website

    Following the return of Expedition 1, Williams has worked within the Robotics branch on the ISS Robotic Arm and the follow on Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator. As a NEEMO 2 crewmember she lived underwater in the Aquarius habitat for 9 days. She is currently assigned to the Expedition-14 crew. She will join Expedition 14 in progress, to serve as a flight engineer, after traveling to the International Space Station with the crew aboard STS-116.

    So apparently she is a robotics wiz and she will be the flight engineer. Now I am not sure if she is doing any specific study as the engineer but she seems to have an important job.
