Mark Rice was born in Southport, United Kindom. He received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Manchester in 1984 and 1989 respectively. He held the position of Research Associate with the University of Manchester from 1984 to 1988, working in the fields of error control coding and future satellite communication systems.

From 1989 to 1996 he worked as a Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Telecommunications Research, University of South Australia. He led research activities to develop new coding and modulation schemes for mobile satellite systems, including the specifications of the world's first national L-band digital voice service and the first commercial application of turbo coding to high speed data transmission.

In 1995 Dr. Rice was awarded a Telecommunications Advancement Organisation Fellowship from the Japanese Government, sponsored by the Communications Research Laboratory (CRL) of Japan.

In 1996, Dr. Rice became a co-founder and Technical Director of DSpace, a private South Australia company developing advanced physical layer designs and sub-systems for satellite and other wireless systems. Dr. Rice is also an Adjunct Associate Professor with the University of South Australia where he participates in turbo coding, digital modem and satellite systems research. He is the co-inventor of three patents related to turbo coding and adaptive rate transmission schemes.
