A new Boosted-Decision-Tree method, QBDT, is proposed to reduce the impact of systematic uncertainties for High Energy Physics. The basic idea is to express the signal significance as a function of the nuisance parameters corresponding to the systematic uncertainties, and then to maximize the significance using decision trees. By testing on a toy example pp→h+X→ γττ+X, QBDT is found to reduce the correlation between signal strength and systematic uncertainties compared to the Gradient BDT method. The uncertainty of the signal strength due to the systematic uncertainties is 50-85% fo that using the Gradient BDT..
