Gunnar Mathias "Mic" Michaeli (born 11 November 1962 in Upplands Väsby, Sweden) is the keyboardist in the Swedish rock band Europe. Like many of the other Europe members he grew up in Stockholm suburb Upplands Väsby. He joined the band for their Wings of Tomorrow tour in 1984, taking vocalist Joey Tempest's place behind the keyboards.

Michaeli has co-written several Europe songs; the most famous song is the hit ballad "Carrie" from the album The Final Countdown. The song was co-written by Michaeli and Tempest, and was Europe's biggest hit in the U.S., reaching number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

After Europe went on hiatus in 1992, Michaeli recorded and toured with bands like Brazen Abbot, Last Autumn's Dream and former Black Sabbath / Deep Purple vocalist Glenn Hughes. He also co-wrote several songs on Joey Tempest's third solo album, Joey Tempest, which was released in 2002.

Michaeli is divorced and currently living in Stockholm. He has three children, Marcus, Moa and Matilda.
