You need to install battens across the rafters. 1×2 screwed to the rafters would be fine. Then I would use reflective insulation. Very easy to install with staples and easy to cut and fit around structural components , followed up by sealing the seams with foil tape. This is the product I’ve used before. Insulation4less Installing some roof vents is a good idea, to allow airflow between the underside of the roof and the insulation.
