Subflooring options

To start, I am brand new to this forum and have little to no experience in the tile/flooring department so any help is very much appreciated.

Just finished demoing a bathroom and looking to move forward with tiling the floor (among many other items that this room will need). I’ve attached a picture of the subfloor that is currently in the room. The joists are 16 inches apart from one another.

What are my options to move forward with this sub flooring? Do I place plywood down onto the joists? If so what thickness am I aiming for? I have some concerns that if the sub flooring is too thick I won’t be able to lay down a backer board and tile before I am over the floor duct and toilet drain. Or do I attempt some kind of mortar bed?

I appreciate any advice/direction with this project and I can provide more details if needed.
